Chad, Sudan mistrust lingers
afrol News, 10 April - The signing of a truce by Chad and Sudan could not prevent the two sides from harbouring mistrust against each other.
On the eve of the first meeting of mediators aimed at finally resolving the long running dispute between the neighbouring countries. Chad and Sudan accused each other of supporting rebels on either side.
Ahead of Libreville meeting, which involves delegates from the United Nations, European Union, US and France, Chadian Defence Ministry issued a statement, accusing Sudan of reigniting tensions in the common borders.
The ministry said as part of its "determination to destabilise Chad", the Sudanese government was gathering, training as well as arming thousands of mercenaries to unleash attacks on Chad's eastern border.
UN Security Council had continuously condemned the continued conflict in eastern Chad where humanitarian situatin dwindled, although influx of refugees from Sudan's Darfur region has been alarming.
