At the Time Where Libya and the international community multiply the pressure for the departure of all the mercenaries and foreign forces of Libya, Khartoum is concerned about the return of "mercenaries" Sudanese from Libya.

for Maryam Al-Mahdi, the Sudanese Minister for Foreign Affairs, the return of the mercenaries of Libya represents a danger to his country who is still trying to stabilize. Especially if these fighters come back with their weapons.

Sudan: Striving for humanitarian care where no one cares

  Sudan: Striving for humanitarian care where no one cares Ethiopian refugees continue to cross into Sudan but at the border they get little support and humanitarian aid.Occasionally, large groups in the hundreds would frantically dash off, hoping to find food, water, shelter or just an ounce of human compassion. It was a grim and urgent image of humanitarian need. Incredibly, eight months later, refugees in eastern Sudan are still struggling to fulfil their basic needs and live a dignified life in the face of what has amounted to a miserably inadequate response to their plight.

In a statement, Khartoum who is threatened, calls on to consider the question "as a priority for the security of the region". Libya wishes for its part that neighboring countries brings "common answers to the question".

The two countries hope to reapply these combatants by integrating them with regular forces after training. They ask their international partners help to set up a reintegration mechanism. The UN estimates at 11,000 the number of Sudanese fighters in Libya.

last April, ten days after the death of Chadian President Idriss Déby, the Security Council noted the risk of a dispersion of mercenaries present in Libya in other countries in the region. Chadian President died in always imprecise conditions following the incursion of heavily armed rebels from South Libyan.
