Chad Declares Four Sudanese Envoys Persona Non Grata

Must Read

Following what it called “grave statements” by Sudanese officials accusing it of interfering in the country’s internal affairs, the Chad government announced on Sunday that it had declared four Sudanese diplomats persona non grata and ordered them to leave within 72 hours.

The embassy’s first counsellor, the defence attaché, and two consuls make up the diplomats.

The statement, signed by a spokesman for the Chad government, claimed that the decision was made in response to “grave statements that lack any basis,” made by senior Sudanese officer General Yassir al-Atta and reiterated by Sudan’s foreign minister on local television.

“The recurrence of such statements by Sudanese authorities with regards to Chad and its government is simply not acceptable, hostile, and masks a hidden agenda,” the statement added.

The foreign ministry of Chad said in a statement on Saturday that the decision was made after the Sudanese ambassador to Chad was called and informed of it. “This measure follows serious and unfounded remarks by the Sudanese army deputy chief of staff Lt Genl Yasir al-Atta accusing Chad of interfering in the inter-Sudanese conflict,” the statement read.

Since April 15, there have been fatal battles in Khartoum and other areas between the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces and the Sudanese Armed Forces.
