UN hails Dakar Agreement

afrol News, 17 March - United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, has hailed Chad and Sudan for their determination and commitment to normalise bilateral relations.

Presidents of Chad and Sudan, Idriss Déby and Omar el-Bashir, on Thursday signed an accord that intended to end hostilities in their common border in Dakar, Senegal.

Mr. Ban, who had witnessed the signing of the Dakar Agreement brokered by President Abdoulaye Wade of Senegal, called on both sides to “remain steadfast in their resolve to restore peace and stability along their shared border, as this would contribute to wider stability in the region as a whole.”

UN Scribe had earlier took part in a closed-door negotiation with the two sides and the facilitators, stressing the need to agree on implementing previous accords and creating measures to monitor violence.

In a statement, Mr Ban expressed the world body's continuous support to the ongoing regional peace efforts, which was why he would work closely with both parties to "ensure the full and speedy implementation of the Dakar Agreement."

Meanwhile, Chad's rebel National Alliance damned the Dakar Agreement and vowed to dislodged President Déby from power. They said unless Déby opens dialogue with them, he will be overthrown.
