December 7, 2013 (KHARTOUM) - Sudan’s foreign ministry regretted the ongoing sectarian violence in the neighbouring Central African Republic (CAR) reaffirming that Sudanese community in Bangui does not face any particular problem.

Foreign ministry undersecretary Rahma Mohamed Osman made his remarks on Friday following the approval by the UN Security Council to the deployment of French troops in the neighbouring country in a bid to stop in the increasing ethnic confrontation between Christian militias loyal to ousted President Francois Bozize and Muslim groups supportingthe interim president Michel Djotodia.

Speaking in a talk show at Radio Omdurman, the Sudanese diplomat regretted that the clashes between the two parties reached such a level triggering regional and international interventions in the troubled country.

The African Union has some 4000 soldiers and France said that it would deploy 1600 soldiers in its former colony.

Also on Saturday, the Red Cross in Central African Republic said they collected the bodies of 394 people killed in the capital, Bangui, since Thursday.

Osman underlined tribal and social interferences between the population of the border areas between the two countries saying Sudanese do not face any specific attacks.

Reports from the country say Sudanese and Chadian nationals are enrolled in the Muslim militias of president Djotodia.

The new Central African president who leads his country since March 2013 visited Khartoum last June where he signed a number of cooperation agreements with the Sudanese government.

Osman said Sudan, Chad and Central Africa agreed to deploy a joint force to monitor the common border between the three countries.

During the last days of his reign, the former president Bozize in January 2013 in statements to the French newspaper Le Figaro accused Khartoum of supporting the rebel groups in the northern part of his country.

He said that Sudanese militiamen "Janjaweed" of Darfur region were fighting besides the rebels.

Also different sources say Chadian troops deployed in Bangui to protect the regime of the former president allowed the former rebels to take the control of the capital.

      And your stupid Riek is asking Sudan to support him. The arms he has received from Iran through Sudan will be given to the rebels SRF.

    Rami Tot, what you said about Sudan’s hand is true and so is Chad. It is unfortunate that wherever there is evil doing, Sudan is involved.
