Sudan Recalls Ambassador to Ethiopia Over Mediation Offer

Sudan Recalls Ambassador to Ethiopia Over Mediation Offer (News Central TV)

The Republic of Sudan has recalled its ambassador to Ethiopia on Sunday, following Ethiopian officials’ refusal to accept Sudan’s offer to mediate in the ongoing Tigray crisis.

In a statement from its foreign ministry, “Ethiopia will improve its position if it considered what Sudan could do…instead of completely rejecting all of its efforts.”

Last week Wednesday, Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok expressed concerns over the Tigray conflict which has led to an influx of over 53,000 refugees into the country since late 2020.

Hamdok’s offer for mediation came within the framework of his presidency of IGAD(Intergovernmental Authority on Development) which represents an 8-country trade bloc.

On Thursday the prime minister’s spokeswoman, Billene Seyoum, dismissed the possibility of Sudan mediating on the conflict in the northern region of Tigray.

Mediation over the GERD have stalled while relations have been soured by disputes over Al-Fashqa, an area of fertile land settled by Ethiopian farmers that Sudan says lies on its side of a border demarcated at the start of the 20th century, which Ethiopia rejects.

The delineation tensions come at a time when Ethiopia, Sudan, and Egypt are also trying to resolve a three-way row over Ethiopia’s Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam.
