Sudan to establish joint force with Central African Republic


September 27, 2010 (KHARTOUM) — Sudan will form a joint force with Central African Republic (CAR) to monitor the border between the two countries as rebels from Chad and Sudan moved their activities to this region.

Col. Fatah al-Rahim Abdalla Suleiman, head of the Sudanese force and deputy commander of the Chad-Sudan force patrolling along the border disclosed in an interview with the official SUNA released on Sunday that a similar force will be soon formed to cover the border between CAR and Sudan.

The border between Chad and Sudan been secured from the extreme south to the north by joint patrols deployed by the two countries this year but a number of rebels moved to the border with the CAR.

"So, we felt the need to form another force similar to Chad-Sudan force with the Central African Republic and now this contingent is soon to be established, said the Sudanese military official.

The colonel pointed out that a military protocol has been already signed between Bangui and Khartoum.

He further said the existing joint force is operating near the CAR border from the Sudanese and Chadian sides while the new joint patrols are expected to cover the rest of the border.

Sudan and Chad work together, since the normalization of bilateral relations, to control the movement of rebel groups from both sides. They also expelled the rebel groups and control their movements.

Chadian rebel leaders have been moved to Doha and some of their troops returned to Ndjamena. However, a Chadian rebel leader Adam Yacoub, chief of military operations of the opposition UFR crossed to CAR with his troops.

Khartoum also fears that the border with CAR can be used by Darfur rebels to transport ammunition and logistics.

Colonel Fatah al-Rahman said the joint Chad-Sudan force has currently limited coordination with Central African army awaiting the composition of the new patrols.

    Haa, Haa, NCP is scared to death because of Darfur rebels. All these plans will never save you since they were arm robberies as your fugitive Presidnet Bashir claimed and pledged to finish them in week time. In 7 years time NCP used all resourses in Sudan to fight Darfur people and failed. Its because people of Darfur believe in their just cause. Darfur was not part of Sudan 100 resolution passed by UNSC which Sudan governemnt has not respected them could give people of Darfur rights to go back where they were before 1916.

        You are right. The plan made by the two countries, Sudan and CAR is a preparation to tackle Southern break away in upcoming ninety days, if not hundred days. This is second revelation that comes after Chad border being close down and the movement of rebel groups across the border is fully controlled by Northern government. It is just the same thing towards South.
        It seems to me as a continuing series of a plan to all neighboring countries to help northern government indirectly.
        That thing is not over yet from Chad and CAR, but it will go all the way to Zaire, Uganda, Kenya, Ethoipia and to Eriteria as well. This might be a confinment plan the North has for us. Why now and not five years ago?

        There is something fishy about that plan of borders!

        The South must not let this thing happens on their watch. If anything matters most, we need to deploy our security units at our borders just as north. We are regions of differing views and our tension is always known against each other. No imbalance system through shallow trick such as this.
        We must secure our borders until referedum is done in time.
        South Sudan must report this serious issue to UN for its consideration. Otherwise, the North is rallying Africa nations behind her to fight the war against us.
