The Egyptian state is "closely" following the latest developments in Sudan, the statement added, affirming the country’s support of the United Nations' calls for activating dialogue between the Sudanese parties to overcome the current crisis and prevent chaos.
Egypt expressed its readiness to support the new Sudanese government by all possible means, the statement noted, adding that "the security and stability of Sudan are integral for those of Egypt and the region."
Sudan's interim prime minister Abdalla Hamdok stepped down in a televised speech on Sunday as the conflicting parties in the neighbouring country failed to reach a compromise.
The country has been witnessing demonstrations since 25 October after General Abdel-Fattah Al-Burhan had declared a state of emergency, ousted the government, and detained the civilian leadership.
The military takeover upended a two-year transition to civilian rule, drew international condemnation and punitive measures, and provoked large protests.
Hamdok was reinstated on 21 November, but mass protests have continued as demonstrators distrust veteran general Al-Burhan and his promises of seeking to guide the country towards full democracy.
