ETHIOPIA has called for a truce to bring an end to tensions along its border with Sudan after the latest spate of killings of soldiers and civilians.
In a statement issued late on Sunday, the Ethiopian government expressed “its deep sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims of both countries.”
It followed a cross-border attack on Saturday in which a child and soldier were killed and several more people wounded.
Sudan claimed the incursion was carried out by a militia backed by Ethiopia’s armed forces and summoned its ambassador to explain.
The country’s Foreign Ministry urged Ethiopia’s government to “take necessary measures to stop these attacks.”
The Ethiopian government responded by calling for joint investigations and for the resumption of cordial relations and “peaceful coexistence between the two countries.”
Border tensions have escalated recently, with Sudanese troops insisting they are being targeted by Ethiopian forces.
Ethiopian farmers have traditionally planted crops across the border in Sudan. But the new transitional government has clamped down after decades of the practice being tolerated.
