Sudan and Chad ambassadors arrive to their posts

November 9, 2008 (KHARTOUM) — The Chadian Ambassador Baharadine Haroune Ibrahim, who had been expelled last May from Khartoum, arrived today to the Sudanese capital to resume his activities.

Ibrahim was transported by a Libyan aircraft that quitted Khartoum airport with the Sudanese Ambassador Abdellah Al-Sheikh and his team to N’djamena.

Sudan broke off diplomatic relations with Chad in May, accusing Ndjamena government of sponsoring an attack on Khartoum by Darfur rebel group the Justice and Equality Movement.

“I’m very happy to be back in my post,” Ibrahim told reporters. He further thanked Libya, which worked fro the restoration of full diplomatic ties between the coutries.

“We came round to the idea of strengthening our relations in all sincerity and to live in harmony as two brotherly neighbours who share many things in common,” Ibrahim further said.
The Chadian envoy stressed that talks are the best way to resolve conflicts “if some problems arise then people should sit down and resolve them.”

The Sudanese ambassador hailed this historical day; and we hope it will be the end of the terrible diplomatic tension that went on between the two countries for six months,” Al-Sheikh, said.

Bilateral relationship between Sudan and Chad has been complicated by Sudan’s festering Darfur conflict. The cross-border and tribal links complicated the situation and no body was aware of Chad.

“This problem has to be solved then to create the condition to solve the big issue of Darfur. If not, it will be impossible to have a solution in Darfur.” the Sudanese Ambassador said.
