May 30, 2012 (KHARTOUM) — Sudan’s defense minister, and chief of staff of the Libyan Air Force last Monday discussed military cooperation between the two countries but few information was available about the meeting.

The official website of Sudan’s defence ministry reported that minister Abdel Rahim Hussein met with Libyan general Saggar Adam Hamad Jeroshi at his office in Khartoum.

Abdel Rahim expressed hopes that combined efforts of the two countries contribute to ensure security of the border between the two countries, stressing that success of the Libyan Revolution is beneficial to Sudan.

The official sources further said that the minister expressed Sudan’s willingness to provide all the kinds of cooperation to the neighbouring country in the field of military training and formation.

Following the fall of Gaddafi’s regime, the Libyan government hosted on March 2012 a border security conference that brought together ministers and military officials from Algeria, Chad, Egypt, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Sudan and Tunisia.

The meeting agreed to strengthen joint border patrols to clamp down on arms trafficking and transnational crime. It also adopted a plan to hold training courses on border security and advanced technologies to better control it.

They also agreed to draw up a permanent mechanism for regional co-operation in combating organised crime and illegal immigration.

Last March Abdel Rahim Hussein announced that a tripartite force composed of Chad, Libya and Sudan will be formed soon to monitor their common borders.

Sudan and Chad established a joint force in January 2010 to monitor their borders within the framework of a normalisation process after long years of proxy war in Darfur and eastern Chad.

        Khartoum has a right to choose military cooperation with any country just like South Sudan cooperation with the Jewish Nation (Israel) and the USA. Khartoum supported the Libyan rebellion who overthrow Gadaffi. Arguably, I don’t care about Khartoum military relationship with Tripoli because they are all Islamist regimes.

      Y dont u make sure of your own advise because u have 4.7 million hungry and an economy that make Sudan’s economy look like its booming. Military cooperation with libya and chad has closed the door for the darfur rebels. Now our focus on our southern border so SPLA need to be very careful. One wrong move and the whole population cud go hungry.

            GHADAFI was pro-Africans and Anti-ARABS.

    SPLA is the liberation for African Land,not just South.
    AU,UN,EU are Supporting Arab Northern Settlers. Shaigia are Albenian European brought by Turky during their Colony in Africa. Arab Prussian Invasion of Nuba Kingdom Egypt lead to whole taking North Africa. SPLA have a right to take whole North Africa if they have Power to do. Northern settlers knew where they come.

      I wonder why SPLA/M did not help KHADAFI?

      KHADAFI was the first supporter of SPLA/M of Dr GARANG.
