Sudan on Friday refuted an allegation that it had intervened in conflicts in eastern Chad, reiterating its commitment to an agreement signed between the two countries earlier this year.
The Tripoli agreement, signed by Sudanese President Omar al- Bashir and Chadian President Idris Deby during a mini African summit in the Libyan capital Tripoli on Feb. 8, called for a good neighborhood between the two countries.
Both Chad and Sudan promised in the agreement that they would not harbor rebels on their territories or conduct mutually hostile activities.
"The Sudanese government remains committed to the Tripoli Agreement, and it is the time for the Chadian side to prove its commitment to the agreement instead of sending signals contrary to it," the Sudanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.
The ministry announced that it summoned on Friday the Chadian Ambassador to Khartoum and asked him about the decision of his country to sever diplomatic relations with Sudan.
"The Sudanese government will determine what the step it will adopt after receiving an official notification on the decision from the Chadian side," the statement added.
It said that recent statements issued by regional and international organizations had affirmed that Sudan had nothing to do with claims on its intervention in internal affairs of Chad.
