HEGLIG REGION, Sudan - Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir vowed on Monday not to negotiate with South Sudan after it occupied the oil-producing Heglig region.

"We will not negotiate with the South's government, because they don't understand anything but the language of the gun and ammunition," he told Sudanese troops at a barracks near the oilfield along the contested border.

General Kamal Abdul Maarouf, a Sudanese army commander who led the battles in Heglig, said the army had killed 1,200 South Sudanese troops in fighting in the area, an account South Sudan denied.
