"Halayeb could ignite conflict"

A Sudanese Presidential Advisor has issued a statement clarifying the Presidential Assistant's statement that Egypt should immediately return the Hala'ib triangle to Sudanese control.

In the new statement by Dr. Ghazi Salah Addee. he says that the previous statement by Mousa Ahmed, of the  Beja tribe is confusing.

The new statement tries to undo the rashness of the first statement by putting the regional hopes of the Beja people into a national context, and by putting possible negotiations with Egypt into a more appropriate timeline.

There was much grace given, as there was no condemnation of the Assistant's person at all.

Read the statement at Sudan Vision.
