THE UNITED STATES CONGRATULATES CHAD, SUDAN, AND THE
UNITED NATIONS ON TRIPARTITE REFUGEE AGREEMENT
Khartoum, Sudan – The United States Embassies in N’Djamena and Khartoum congratulate the governments of Chad and Sudan, as well as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), on the signing of the Tripartite Agreements, which lay out the legal framework to facilitate the voluntary, safe, and dignified returns of Sudanese refugees in Chad and Chadian refugees in Sudan.
This is the first step in ensuring that refugees can safely return home and in resolving two protracted refugee situations, which is especially welcomed now as the world is seeing historical levels of population displacements.
