Kadhafi’s man to seek peace for Sudanese and Chadians

Posted by African Press International on April 12, 2007

N’Djamena (Chad) Chadian President Idriss Deby Itno, met Wednesday afternoon with the Libyan Foreign Relations and African Integration Minister, Ali Triki in N’djamena charged by Colonel Moammar Kadhafi to help defuse the tension between Chad and Sudan following a clash by their armies on Monday evening, APA has learnt.

Triki told newsmen that an expert follow-up meeting was scheduled for 16 April in Tripoli to be attended by the two parties.

Chad and Sudan resumed bloody clashes last Monday with the incursion in Chadian army into Sudan in pursuit of fleeing rebels.

During the operation, Chadian soldiers clashed with the Sudanese army inside the Sudanese territory, an act described by Khartoum as an outrageous attack.

“We were using our right of pursuit,” Chadian Communication minister argued in justification of the Chadian army move.

For several years now, Chad and Sudan have been trading accusations of abetting with each others enemies that have caused untold suffering to civilian populations along their common borders.
