 Khartoum, (sudanow.info.sd)- Sudan on Thursday declared its official rejection for the preliminary report on violations of international human rights and humanitarian law in Southern Kordufan, issued by United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.

 In a terse statement the ministry of foreign affairs responded to the 12 page report of the commission describing it as lacking professionalism.

 "The report data gathering and drafting lacked professionalism". The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement carried by the official Sudan news agency summer on Thursday.

 He Sudanese statement has criticized a citation in the report that talked about marginalization of the Nuba ethnic groups of south Kordufan saying it contradicts the reality in the Sudan where the Nubs are an integral part of the Sudanese social fiber and are participating in all apparatus of the state and in all parts of the country.

 "Marginalization of the Nuba ethnic communities by the Government of Sudan led some of them to take up arms along with the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA), during the North-South war between 1983 and 2005. Nuba communities faced a brutal counter-insurgency campaign until a ceasefire in 2003."  The report reads.

 The report which covered the period from 5 to 30 June 2011 charged that the army air bombed several areas including Kadugli and Deleng which the foreign ministry argued are under its control and therefore could not be bombarded possibly.

 The statement said the report has failed to mention any of the positive steps carried out by the government of Sudan in south Kordufan and in place focused on the negative points, with regards to provision of humanitarian food.
