Recent comments from chief Sudanese negotiator Ghazi Atabani similarly proclaim Sudan's willingness to be an equal partner in peace.
When I opened The Washington Times on Tuesday and saw an Op-Ed column by Dr. Ghazi Salahuddin Atabani, a key adviser to Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, under the headline "Give peace a chance," I could only assume that April Fools' Day had arrived very late this year.

Khartoum violates Nuba Mountain cease-fire agreement
We are aware that Beshir's peace advisor, Ghazi Salah el Din Atabani has made public utterances this week against the cease-fire agreement in the Nuba Mountains.
Beshir's spokesman, Information Minister Ghazi Salah Eddin Atabani, said that life in Sudan was normal and would remain so.The streets in the country have remained calm and there has been no unusual security presence in public places.Beshir said yesterday he had met with army, police and security officers and appeared confident that his position was secure."All of them expressed their support for the measures and even said they should have been taken earlier," Beshir said, adding that he had no plans to order arrests or to exclude anyone from government, and had not received any resignations.Turabi's Leadership Authority within the National Congress Party has reportedly called on the party's ministers to resign from the government in protest.Beshir said in his television speech late Sunday that he could no longer tolerate rival power bases in Sudan after a rift with Turabi.Beshir compared Sudan to a ship passing through a powerful storm that requires the presence of one captain."Two captains make a ship sink," Beshir said, adding that: "We have started living on isolated islands within the National Congress and every request or proposal I made to the leadership of the party was rejected."Beshir said that the National Congress had split into two hostile groups.Under Turabi's leadership, parliament was preparing to amend the constitution to provide for a prime minister accountable to the parliament who would be charged with running the day-to-day affairs of the government.The position of the president would still remain under the proposed amendment, but his powers would be curtailed.Another Turabi-supported amendment would have allowed for direct gubernatorial elections in Sudan's different states.
said the state of emergency would not obstruct these reconciliation efforts, but Turabi
said, "How can we expect a man who has betrayed his
own organization to conduct reconciliatory overtures with others?"The reconciliation efforts were being mediated by Egypt and Libya.Egypt, which in the early years of the Beshir
regime tried unsuccessfully to convince Beshir
to break away from Turabi
, yesterday expressed its strong support for Beshir.
