Sudan slams Chad for delay on normalization of relations


November 20, 2009 (KHARTOUM) — Sudan’s dominant National Congress Party (NCP) slammed Chad’s lack of seriousness in the in the normalization of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The NCP said Ndjamena’s linkage between the improvement of bilateral relations and the expulsion of Chadian rebels from Sudan means to encourage the intransigence of Darfur rebels in the Doha negotiations.

The Sudanese reaction comes after remarks made by the Chadian foreign minister Mousa Faki Mohamed last week where he said no date had been fixed for a visit by Chadian delegation to Khartoum. the minister further added they had been expecting Sudan to evacuate the rebels from the border area and to send a delegation to verify the no presence of Sudanese rebels in Chad.

"A week after these steps we will go to Sudan to talk about the issues of securing the border and normalization of relations, and possibly the opening of the consulates in border towns," Mousa said.

"The National Congress Party regrets the negative remarks made by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Chad on a number of issues between N’Djamena and Khartoum, said Abdel Hamid Al-Bushra, NCP official tasked with West and Central Africa relations. He pointed out that Chad is no longer interested to improve ties with Sudan.

Al-Bushra said Ndjamena’s requirement to expel the Chadian rebels from the Sudan is "an attempt to thwart the efforts the Sudanese government for the normalization of relations between the two countries and to undermine the Doha peace negotiations."

In a bid to repair relations between the two countries, Sudanese presidential adviser Ghazi Salah Al-Deen Attabanti met the Chadian President Idriss Deby on Saturday October 10 expressing Khartoum willingness to improve ties and end the current tensions between the two countries.

During a visit to Paris in October Chadian President Idriss Deby said Sudanese counterpart Omer Hassan Al-Bashir had committed himself to remove the Chadian rebels and to confine them far from the border. He also said he agreed to allow Sudan to verify the presence of Darfur rebels in his country.

Following the two day visit to the Chadian capital, Ghazi said a Chadian delegation would visit Khartoum to finalize the normalization process.

However, it was reported that Chad rebels regained their bases in the border area after a short stay in Jebal Marra in North Darfur.

The Sudanese Presidential adviser was last week in Paris where he briefed the French officials about his visit to Chad and Sudan readiness to normalize relations with Chad.

Ghazi also urged Paris to press Ndjamena to speed the process and to avoid delay in order to enhance the chances of success of Doha peace process.

A western analyst who follows the Chad Sudan dossier said the lack of confidence between the two countries remains high and there is a need to help them gradually and through concrete measures to rebuild trustful relations.

He reminded the rebels’ attack in eastern Chad while the two countries had just signed a reconciliation agreement in Doha in May 2009.

He added Sudan also fears that Darfur rebels would leave Chad after the eviction of the Chadian rebels.

    I think the problem is not in the presence of this or that group of rebels having bases here or there. The question is why have these rebels emerged at all in the first place? Under the circumstances people living in both countries and states, it is comprehensible that you have rebellions emerged. These have their own sound and logic reasons, so the other question is why have the regimes in the two countries failed to solve and address thesse causes of rebelion in their respective countries? Part of the answer lies in the fact that both countries lack genuine nation-wide effective constitutional institutions that can courageouesly and dedicatedly solve political, economic and social issues in both countries, which are similar in several aspects. There are tribal based regimes in both states,albait in various degrees. so, if people applied the priciple " citizenship shall be the basis for rights and obligations " I’m sure there shall be no problem in both countries. The solution in both states lies in working geuinely in solving and addressing causes of conflict.Officials in both states should free themsevles from tribalism and regionalism.They should accept the fact that the rebels are ciyizens entitled to have the same rights they are having.I’m not saying that all have the right to be presidents or the right to be in the palace. No, they only need to be represented at all levels as long as it is possible. Removing this group of rebels or that from this borders or that base will not be a sincere and sustainable solution.

        Pre mature mind is nothing, if you cannot do this in Sudan how could you talk of Chad as a nation. Do you think that all arabs has the same attitude like you and your notorous uncle Al bashir. Sing so but when comes to reality some arabs will even stand aganist you. Talk about your dinkas ladies including Bona, Alor, Francis and Alier.

          And you are telling us that you are mature!!!.Mawalana Abel Aeer and Dr.Francis Deng are emeninet Sudanese figures.Every genuine Sudanese deeply respect them and proud of them,even if we have difference in opinion with them.They will remain prominent in the history of Sudan forever.

          What is wrong with being a women!My mother is a women, I am proud of her;my daughter is a women and I adore and love her, my wife is a women and I am proud of her.Or may be you have no mother and you are not married to a women or you feel ashamed of your sisters being ladies!

          Your pathetic culture of HATRED makes you denounce such respectful figures simply because they are from a different tribe.What a shame!

    This Chadian government has no use, unless we topple this government we can’t resolve Darfour problem, we invaded them two times and we just about to capture Debi but his dog guard (France) rescued him, Chad has no army but a militia that belongs to Debi’s tribe, it’s not a bad idea to give another try, we should give it another try but unless we find a solution with their dog guard (France) we can’t succeed, we have to find away to fool this dog and remove Debi out of power.
