Presidents Bashir and Salva Kiir met in Addis yesterday to finalise a peace deal.
Just two days earlier, Sudanese planes airdropped supplies, possibly weapons, to an anti-government militia deep within South Sudan. UN troops provided confirmation that planes dropped packages in the area. The Small Arms Survey also confirm the pattern through 2009-2012 of Chinese-made arms being supplied (in contravention of a UN embargo) by Sudan to militia in Darfur and South Sudan.
Either Bashir is not serious, or perhaps more likely, he is not in control.
