Renewal of Diplomatic Relations between Chad and Sudan

The United States welcomes the exchange of Ambassadors between the Governments of Chad and Sudan on November 10. This is a crucial step towards bringing peace and stability to the region and resolving the conflict in Darfur. We commend the efforts on the part of the Government of Libya to facilitate this exchange. We encourage Chad and Sudan to continue to improve relations and cease support for rebels operating along the Chad/Sudan border. We strongly support the efforts of the Dakar Agreement Contact Group and look forward to the results of its next meeting scheduled for November 15 in N’Djamena.

We continue to encourage the Government of Sudan to support full deployment of the UN/African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID). The United States remains committed to reaching a resolution to the conflict in Darfur, ameliorating the humanitarian suffering in both Darfur and eastern Chad, and restoring stability in the region.
