Egypt not taking sides in Sudan: Ambassador
Ahram Online, , Monday 17 Jun 2019


Egypt is not taking sides with regards to any of Sudan’s factions given its keenness to maintain Sudan's security and stability, Egyptian ambassador in Khartoum Hossam Eissa said.

During a meeting with leader of the Declaration of Freedom and Change Forces (DFCF) Khalid Omar Youssef, the Egyptian ambassador stressed that Sudan's security and stability will not be achieved without a consensus among the Sudanese parties themselves.

The meeting tackled efforts exerted by Egypt to support Sudan, with Eissa emphasising the important role played by Sudan's regional partners, including the neighbouring countries and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), to solve the Sudanese crisis.

The ambassador reviewed preparations for a ministerial meeting of Sudan's regional partners, which will be held in Addis Ababa on Thursday to discuss the Sudanese crisis.

"Egypt is keen to listen to the views of all Sudanese parties," he stressed.

Youssef spoke about the latest developments in Sudan and the role that should be played by the country's regional partners to fufil the aspirations of the Sudanese people.
