Sudan claims to have regained control of border with Ethiopia


##Other countries : #Sudanese #Foreign #Minister said #Thursday that #Khartoum had regained control of all the land occupied by #Ethiopian peasants along its border with #Ethiopia.

“The army has now fully reclaimed #Sudanese territory,” #Minister #Omar #Gamar #Eldine said at a press conference in #Khartoum on #Thursday.

“The borders have already been demarcated, all that remains to be discussed … is to increase the number of border signs”, he added.

#Tensions have erupted between the two countries in the #El-Fashaqa region, where #Ethiopian peasants have occupied and cultivated fertile soils claimed by #Sudan.

#Sporadic clashes have taken place in the region over the years, but the conflict was rekindled in #November when the #Ethiopian federal government sent troops to the #Tigray region against local authorities.

#Some 50,000 #Ethiopian refugees have crossed the #Sudanese border to escape the fighting. #Khartoum recently accused #Ethiopian “forces and militias” of ambushing #Sudanese troops along the border, killing four and injuring 20.

#Addis #Ababa, for its part, downplayed the importance of these incidents, believing that they did not threaten relations between the two countries.

#Sudan has since deployed troops to the border region and held talks with its eastern neighbor over the course of the border.

#Ethiopian #Foreign #Ministry spokeswoman #Dina #Mufti said “outside forces” were causing tensions with #Sudan. #However, he did not name these forces.

#In a statement on #Wednesday, he added that these forces “have no regard for either the #Ethiopians or the #Sudanese, but want chaos in the region, and benefit from this chaos.”
