SOLUTION TO SUDANESE-EGYPTIAN DISPUTE OVER HALAIB TRIANGLE IN HANDS OF TWO PRESIDENTS

Sudanese Foreign Minister Professor Ibrahim Ghandour says the resolution of the question of the Halaib Triangle, a territory on the Sudan-Egypt border claimed by both countries, remains in the hands of the presidents of the two countries.

Stressing that the solution should either be by direct dialogue between the two or via international arbitration, Ghandour told the Sudanese parliament Wednesday, when reviewing his ministry's performance for 2016-2017, that relations between Sudan and Egypt should be seen within their geographical and historical dimensions and that preserving them at the darkest of periods should be in observance of the interests of the two peoples of the Nile Valley.

Ghandour meanwhile urged Sudanese traditional gold miners to keep away from crossing into Egyptian territory. He said combating illegal migration and human trafficking is the responsibility of governments.

Commenting on the current Gulf crisis, Ghandour stressed that Sudan would work to mend the fences between its sisters and brothers and that he was sure that the leaders of the countries concerned would reconcile as what binds them is more than blood kinship.
