The Egyptian Embassy in Khartoum was officially informed on Thursday that Sudan has recalled it's ambassador to Cairo today for consultation, the spokesman for Egypt's foreign minstry said tonight.

The foreign ministry spokesperson added that Egypt is currently conducting a comprehensive assessment of the situation in order to take the appropriate measure.

A statement by the Sudanese foreign ministry issued earlier Thursday announcing Khartoum's decision to recall its envoy to Cairo did not say why or how long he would stay, Reuters reported.
