Sudan and Chad

Volume 455: debated on Monday 15 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent representations she has made to the governments of (a) Sudan and (b) Chad on (i) complying with bilateral agreements, (ii) securing their common border and (iii) co-operating on stabilising the region. (113837)

We take every opportunity to press both Sudan and Chad to stop supporting each others' rebels and to fulfil their obligations under the Tripoli Agreement. Christopher Prentice, UK Ambassador-at-Large for the Sudanese Peace Process, stressed this to the Government of Sudan during his visit in December 2006. Our Permanent Representative to the UN in New York did the same with the Chadian Foreign Minister on 20 December 2006 in New York. Given the importance of this issue, we will continue to press both Governments on this matter.
