Sudan says faces 'threat' on Egypt-Eritrea border

Sudan says faces 'threat' on Egypt-Eritrea borderSudan says faces 'threat' on Egypt-Eritrea border by Shelley Chandler | January 15, 2018 | 22:33 The Egyptian leader also called on his country's media to cease attacks on Sudan, saying it should follow the example of his administration which, he said, refrained from insulting its neighbors even in the face of intentional slights. Last Saturday, Sudan closed its border with Eritrea and sent thousands of troops to the Kassala state near the border. Ghandour said that they were not talking "about threats to a country per se" but that they have information that shows there are some who would mean them harm. "Sudan's national army has sent part of its forces to this area to protect Sudan's security as we have information that some parties are targeting us", Sudanese foreign minister, Ibrahim Ghandour, said after meeting his Ethiopian counterpart Workneh Gebeyehu in Khartoum on Sunday. "Some of the opposition forces are present in the eastern part of our country, so we are figuring out what can come from that place", he stated. Egypt believes Sudan is leaning towards the Ethiopian position in the dispute. Previously, on January 4, Khartoum had recalled its ambassador from Egypt for consultation, amid tension with Cairo over a disputed border region. The latest tension was sparked after Sudan signed an agreement to temporarily hand over the Red Sea island of Suakin to Turkey. Turkey is also set to build a naval dock on the island. Ties between Turkey and Egypt have been frosty for some time. Relations between Egypt and Sudan have soured in recent months due to disputes over the ownership of the triangle, and over the broader issue of the use of water from the River Nile that passes through their territories. "Egypt will not fight its brothers". Egypt has expressed mounting alarm over a soon-to-be-completed upstream dam in Ethiopia that Cairo fears could cut into its share of the Nile River, which provides almost all its fresh water. The Blue and the White Nile tributaries converge in Sudan's capital Khartoum and from there run north through Egypt to the Mediterranean. Egypt, with a population roughly equal to Ethiopia's, has traditionally received the lion's share of the Nile's waters under agreements reached in 1929 and 1959. 10ThousandCouple http://10thousandcouples.com/2018/01/sudan-says-faces-threat-on-egypt-eritrea-border/
