Sudan doesn't want war with South
Director Mohamed Atta Abbas al-Moula of Sudan's National Intelligence and Security Services outlined Khartoum's version of the clashes in Unity state and South Kordofan state at a news conference, the Sudan Tribune reported Wednesday.
"We hope this will be no full war," he said. "We have no intentions beyond liberating our (occupied) land. We don't want to enter southern territory."
South Sudan reported aerial and ground attacks by the Sudanese Armed Forces and the bombing of oil fields in Unity State on Tuesday.
The South also said it had taken full control of the oil-rich Heglig region but a military spokesman later said only parts of Heglig were captured.
South Sudanese President Salva Kiir has said Heglig belongs to his country.
Sudan Tuesday announced cancellation of a planned April 3 meeting between Sudanese President Omer Hassan al-Bashir and Kiir.
KHARTOUM, Sudan, March 28 (UPI) -- Sudan has no plans to enter South Sudan despite recent military confrontations in poorly defined border areas, a government spokesman said.
