Sudanese Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour – File Photo
CAIRO- 8 September, 2017: Sudan's Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour on Thursday said Khartoum is beefing border security to control smuggling.
The minister made the remarks after reports said earlier today that Sudan has closed its borders with neighbors.
The minister denied the reports, asserting the new measures would control movement of arms, drugs and criminals through borders.
Security cooperation agreements are binding Sudan to its neighbors, the minister said, adding that Sudan and Chad had formed joint border forces to coordinate border guard missions.
