Sudan has renewed its complaint to the UN Security Council against Egypt over the ownership of the disputed Halayib Triangle, Sudan News Agency reported.

The agency quoted an unnamed diplomatic source as saying on Tuesday “the Sudan permanent mission to the United Nations was contacted on 5 January, to keep the country’s complaint before the UN Security Council under consideration”, adding that Khartoum has been renewing its request to the UN Security Council annually.

Sudan warned in October last year that it would resort to international arbitration if talks with Egypt regarding the borders between the two countries failed.

In April 2016, Egypt rejected Sudan’s request for direct negotiations on the disputed area or to resort to international arbitration.
