Egypt, Su­dan ties poor

Pretoria News - - WORLD -

KHARTOUM: The Su­danese gov­ern­ment has said its ties with Egypt are in cri­sis due to the is­sue of the con­tested Halayeb tri­an­gle and re­stric­tions placed by Egyp­tian author­i­ties on Su­danese min­ers there.

“The re­la­tion­ship with Egypt is not good and we hope it will get bet­ter in the com­ing days,” Hamid Mum­taz, State Min­is­ter for For­eign Af­fairs, said. “Egypt in­sists on af­fil­i­a­tion of Halayeb to it with­out doc­u­ments. It also re­jects ar­bi­tra­tion or ne­go­ti­a­tion.”

He went on to say “we have doc­u­ments prov­ing that Halayeb is Su­dan’s” and urged the Egyp­tian side to over­come mi­nor is­sues to re­store re­la­tions.
