Kampala, Monday April 21, 2014 Sudan has recalled its ambassador Hussein Awad Ali from Uganda as relationship between the two countries deteriorates further.
Sudan is involved in a diplomatic spat with Uganda over accusation of sheltering rebels fighting against the regime in Khartoum.
The two countries have for a long time accused each other of supporting rebels opposed to their respective regimes.
Uganda has in the past accused President Omar al Bashir’s government of fighting a proxy war against it by sponsoring the Joseph Kony’s led Lord’s Resistance Army-LRA rebels while Sudan also accuses Uganda of sheltering rebels seeking to topple the Government in Khartoum.
Uganda has not yet indicated whether it will recall its ambassador from Khartoum.
The move in effect, means the end to an effort put up by a committee of foreign affairs ministries of the two countries to try and restore diplomatic relations.
Uganda’s Foreign Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Fred Opolot was quoted by the local media in Uganda admitting the presence of some Sudanese rebels in Kampala but that the regime there does not allow them to carry out subversive activities while Uganda where they sometimes travel to visit relatives.
Uganda last year expelled a Sudanese diplomatJad el Mohammed Elhag who was ngaging in accused of esponiage.
