Press Statement

October 18, 2009


We welcome the steps taken by the governments of Chad and Sudan on the visit to N’Djamena by the Sudanese delegation led by Special Presidential Adviser Dr. Ghazi Salahadin, who met with Chadian President Idriss Deby Itno and Foreign Minister Moussa Faki Mahamat. We hope that this meeting and the projected follow-on visit of a Chadian delegation led by Minister Faki to Khartoum will facilitate the normalization of their bilateral relations and contribute to peace and stability in the region. To this end, we encourage Sudan and Chad to take meaningful and concrete steps to cease support for rebels operating on both sides of the Chad/Sudan border.

The United States remains committed to working with all parties to reach a resolution of the conflict in Darfur, to relieve the humanitarian suffering in both Darfur and eastern Chad, and to restore peace in the region.
