In a statement, Noriko Yoshida, UNHCR representative in Sudan, said: “it is very moving to see refugees

returning to their home country after many years in exile.”

Yoshida appealed to the international community to assist the efforts of the Sudanese government on the return

of Sudanese refugees from Chad.

Meanwhile, Sudan’s Commissioner of Refugees, Hamad El-Gizouli, was quoted in the statement as saying that

Sudanese government attaches great concern to the voluntary return of refugees as being the best solution

for them so that they could begin to rebuild their life as Sudanese citizens.

Thousands of Sudanese refugees fled to Chad after the eruption of the conflict in Darfur from

2003 to 2004.

Sudan and Chad and UNHCR signed a tripartite agreement in May 2017 for the voluntary repatriation of Sudanese

refugees from Chad and the Chadian refugees from Sudan.

The UNHCR and the two governments concerned are targeting the repatriation of 20,000 refugees from Chad in 2018.

According to UN statistics, some 300,000 Sudanese refugees currently live in eastern Chad.
