What a strange country ethiopia is. I call it the Russia tactic cause trouble elsewhere to distract from the situation at home.

Probably same reason China keeps North Korea around.

They are one of the most authoritarian country in the world but everyone is distracted by best Korea.

Sudanese people need to get rid of their corrupt warlord leaders to get anywhere.

They have a small population and resource rich country... only thing in their way is foreign interference through incompetent corrupt leaders.

Shame no African country wants to help them as they don't want to annoy China and the West.

Not at the rate their population is growing. Their population is now about equal to that of Somalia. They have a huge advantage over us though in that their entire country is arable, has huge water resources and proven oil. Even with all of those resources they may overshoot on the population front.

South Sudan fertility rate would probably go down in the next generation once they civilised a bit more.

They might end up with double the population but they still have tens of millions of arable hectares and enough mineral resources to build whatever they need.

Did all of you fail to read the article? It's about opening up the border for trade and has nothing to do with rebels.

Jk aside... Most these "bilateral cooperation" agreements between dictators are usually fronts for other talks and hence we're speculation about bs we haven't got a clue about above.

Ethiopian Hand in South Sudan
By Thomas C. Mountain | Jan 7, 2014| Africa, US, Viewpoints | 7 |




Ethiopia has been active in destabilizing South Sudan and has been repeatedly caught providing arms to “rebels” in the Jonglei and Unity States in the north of the country during the past year.

Some of these arms are reported to being used against UN peacekeepers on top of the general ethnic based slaughter that the rebels have been committing across South Sudan.

Ethiopia, which has upwards of 10,000 troops (“peacekeepers”) occupying the borders between Sudan and South Sudan (which includes the oil fields) has been hosting the leader of the “rebellion”, Riek Machar, who has been reported to be hiding out in one of his multi-million dollar palaces in Addis Ababa.

Riek Machar, nominal leader of the Nuer tribe at the center of the “rebellion” comprising about 10% of South Sudan, has been accused of stealing over $2 billion of the over $10 billion oil revenues stolen by the South Sudanese leadership in the last 7 years.

He, along with his partners in crime on the South Sudanese cabinet of thieves, is blaming President Salva Kiir and his Dinka tribe for why none of the $15 billion in oil revenues has made it down to the Nuer people. “Thief crying Thief” best describes it.

One of the first demands Riek Machar made post “coup” attempt was that his cronies arrested by the Salva Kiir government be released and flown to Ethiopia. One of his next demands was that all “peace talks” be held in Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, though how serious he is can be seen by his demand that Salva Kiir must resign before any serious talks begin.

Ethiopia, a country of 80 million plus, imports all of its fuel needs and spends upwards of 75% of its foreign currency on fuel imports.

This past year, Ethiopia’s economy saw its total foreign earnings decline due to a plunge in coffee prices (somehow the western media keeps reporting on how Ethiopia’s economy is booming even though its export income has fallen?).

The Ethiopian regime is desperately in need of oil, and Riek Machar’s behind the scene demands for a share of not just oil income but actual oil itself would seem to explain Ethiopia’s destabilizing South Sudan.

And the USA—the real hand behind the civil war in South Sudan, for Ethiopia is Pax Americana’s local enforcer in East Africa—wants to see the end of all Chinese energy projects in Africa, with Sudan being China’s number one project.

But then, the USA was the hand behind the creation of South Sudan in the first place. The irony of how John Garang, revered as the founding father of South Sudan, was a vociferous opponent of any such thing is completely absent from any discussion of the South Sudanese civil war in the mainstream media as well as the alternative sites.

It was just a few weeks before his very suspicious death in a helicopter crash that John Garang had made his first ever address to the people of north Sudan, speaking before over 1 million people in Khartoum in 2005 (President Bashir has never rallied more than a tenth of John Garang’s crowd).

And what did Mr. Garang say that fateful day? That he was completely, unconditionally opposed to severing the nation of Sudan, that Sudan would be reborn with equal rights and justice for all Sudanese when he, John Garang, was elected President of Sudan in the next election.

You're obviously stretching. This article is from over 3 yrs ago unlike the original post. Both countries have already agreed to not host rebels since 2015, and Machar is currently based in some Central African country.
