Note, Chad hosts 200,000 refugees from the Sudan and Libya opened up a new trans-Sahara aid route for UN WFP aid trucks to enter Darfur.

Over the past year, President Deby and Colonel Gaddafi, along with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, helped overcome obstacles on the Darfur peace talks and worked to progress the talks.
