Sudan’s ruling National Congress Party (NCP) and Chad’s Patriotic Salvation Movement (CPS) signed a joint cooperation agreement during the visit of the Sudanese presidential aide and NCP deputy chairman Ibrahim Mahmoud Hamid to N’djamena last February.

Amira al-Fadil, NCP head of foreign relations sector said the visit of the Chadian delegation to Sudan is the first since the signing of the cooperation agreement, pointing it comes within the framework of implementing the training and capacity building parts of the agreement.

She added the Chadian delegation would meet with the NCP’s leadership besides the woman and youth secretariats. Also, it would also hold political meetings as part of the activation and implementation of the joint agreement.

For his part, the CPS deputy secretary general Zakaria Salih praised the NCP’s desire to strengthen friendship and cooperation ties between the two countries.

He pointed to the Sudanese medical aid convoy which travelled recently to N’djamena, saying it received warm welcome and praise from the Chadian people.

Salih added the visit comes within the framework of implementing the joint agreement particularly with regard to training and capacity building, saying they also seek the support of the NCP in the Chadian electoral campaign which will take place from March 20th to April 10th.

Since the outbreak of Darfur crisis in 2003, Sudan and Chad traded accusations of support to respective rebel groups. But seven years later, the two countries put their differences aside and decided to work together for peace and regional stability.
