Sudan files complaint to the African Union against Chad

December 30, 2007 (KHARTOUM) — Sudan has delivered a complaint to the African Union (AU) on Chadian army incursion inside Darfur region.

Last Friday said that three military aircrafts violated Sudan’s airspace and bombed Rajel al-Harziah and Karmolah localities, 56 klm southern east el-Geniana, the capital of West Darfur. Sudan also, said Chadian troops entered into Sudanese territory, on Friday December 28 in the morning.

The Sudanese complaint was handed over Sunday by Director of the African Union Department at the foreign ministry, Ambassador Gamal Al-Shiekh, to the acting Chairman of the AU mission in Khartoum Ahmed Rufaai Abu-Bakr.

The complaint exposed the Chadian “repeated aggressions” committed against the Sudanese territories in disregard to the principles of good neighbourliness and the agreements signed between the two countries, the official SUNA said.

Chad denied on Saturday the Sudanese accusation saying its ground and air forces had attacked rebel targets along the border, but had not crossed into Sudan.
