Abu-al-Ghayt also underlined the importance of continuing dialogue and steering clear of the language of threats and escalation to help solve the crisis.

The two sides underlined the need to reach an immediate ceasefire in Somalia and resume talks between the interim Somali government and the Union of Islamic Courts.

Following talks with the Egyptian foreign minister, Ismail said that he briefed Aboul Gheit on the Arab League efforts to solve the Lebanese crisis.

He noted that Arab League Secretary-General Amr Musa would resume his efforts to solve the crisis following the Christmas holidays.

Talks with the Egyptian minister also tackled ties between Sudan and Chad, said Ismail, adding that he was briefed on the outcome of talks between Aboul-Gheit and Chadian Foreign Minister Ahmad Allam-Mi.

The Sudanese presidential envoy said that Sudan was keen on having distinguished ties with Chad, urging Ndjamena to stop interference in Darfur affairs.
