AFP: Sudan rivals should prepare to implement court ruling: US. The United States on Tuesday urged rival leaders from north and south Sudan to prepare to carry out terms of an imminent court ruling on a boundary dispute over the contested oil-rich Abyei region. The call comes after US officials said the National Congress Party (NCP) and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) pledged here last month to accept as binding a ruling from the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague. The ruling, which is expected next week, is seen as a major challenge to the fragile Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) signed in 2005 by the northern NCP -- the party of President Omar al-Beshir -- and the southern SPLM. "The United States calls on both parties to the Comprehensive Peace Agreement ... immediately to prepare for the implementation of the decision," State Department spokesman Ian Kelly said in a statement.

The Wall Street Journal: Anti-genocide proposal fails for four more fidelity funds. Investors in four more Fidelity Investments funds have voted down a proposal pushed by an outside activist group to install rules against investing in companies linked to genocide. The latest rejections, announced Wednesday during a Fidelity shareholder meeting, follow votes against an anti-genocide proposal in more than a dozen Fidelity funds last year. The proposal has netted some support, reaching as high as 31% of the votes in one case last year and as much as 24.6% Wednesday, but Fidelity has not backed the measure. The proposal was brought by Boston-based Investors Against Genocide, which wants Fidelity to disengage from investing in a handful of companies - most notably PetroChina Co. (PTR) and its parent China National Petroleum Corp. - that have links with the government in Sudan, where the U.S. government has called militia attacks in the Darfur region a genocide.
