The Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stressed today, Sunday, the need for no “external party” to exploit the current developments in Sudan to carry out actions that fuel the intensity of the conflict or aim to undermine its territorial integrity.
In a statement, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry stressed the importance of preserving the safety and security of the Egyptian community in Sudan, stressing that Cairo “will spare no effort in carrying out the necessary efforts, in cooperation with friendly and brotherly countries, in order to defuse the current crisis.”
The Egyptian Foreign Minister, Sameh Shoukry, had expressed, in a telephone conversation he made earlier in the day with his Sudanese counterpart, Ali Al-Sadiq, his country’s deep concern about the continuation of the current armed confrontations, as they pose a threat to the security and safety of the Sudanese people and the stability of their state.
Shoukry stressed that the Egyptian position will always defend the unity and integrity of Sudan, the capabilities of the Sudanese people, and the need for no external party to interfere in any way that fuels the current conflict.
The statement said that the two ministers also discussed the conditions of the Egyptian community in Sudan, and the importance of preserving the security and safety of all Egyptians in Sudan in light of the deteriorating security conditions.
Violent clashes erupted between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces since yesterday, Saturday, in Khartoum and several other cities, resulting in dozens of casualties, amid international and Arab calls for an end to violence and calm.
