Sudan regrets Chad's pullout from Darfur mediation

4/15/2005 8:45pm

KHARTOUM, Sudan, Apr 14, 2005 (PANA) -- Sudanese foreign minister Mustafa Osman Ismail has expressed regrets over Chad's decision to suspend its mediatory role between Khartoum and rebel movements in the western Darfur region, media reports said here Thursday.

"We (the government) hope that Chad continues its crucial role to enhance political settlement of the Darfur conflict," Ismail told journalists here Wednesday, but noted "we can't compel Chad to do so."

On Tuesday a senior aide of President Idriss Deby announced that Chad was suspending its mediation in the Darfur conflict that has reportedly claimed over 150,000 lives and uprooted millions of others, some seeking refuge in neighbouring Chad.

"We cannot be pursuing efforts to reconcile a country that seeks to destabilise Chad," presidential adviser Ahmed Allam-mi declared, days after N'djamena accused Khartoum of providing a base for a 3,000-strong armed Chadian opposition group.

Reacting to the announcement, Ismail reiterated that "Chad has the right to take any action it thinks could stabilise security along its borders. We have told the Chadians this previously."

The foreign minister stressed that the Khartoum government will spare no effort to pave the way for a lasting solution to the conflict in Darfur in collaboration with other African countries.
