The Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs opens an extensive investigation into the circumstances of the killing of the assistant Egyptian administrative attaché at its embassy in Khartoum


The Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemns the killing of the Egyptian assistant administrative attache at its embassy in Khartoum as a result of the ongoing clashes in Sudan.

The Ministry expresses its sadness and regret for the loss of the deceased, who was on his way to the embassy to follow up on the tasks of evacuating Egyptian citizens.

The Ministry also extends its sincere condolences to the family and relatives of the deceased, hoping that God Almighty will bless him with the abundance of his mercy and dwell him in his spacious gardens.

The Ministry affirms its support and solidarity with brotherly Sudan in these difficult circumstances, and expresses its hope that the current crisis will be overcome peacefully and without further human losses.

The ministry also affirms that it will take all necessary measures to protect Egyptian citizens in Sudan and provide them with the necessary support.

For its part, the Egyptian government has expressed its full solidarity with the family of the deceased and his family, and expressed hope that the Sudanese authorities will be able to find the perpetrators and bring them to justice.

This incident comes in light of the escalation of the intensity of the clashes between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces in the capital, Khartoum, and a number of other cities in the country, which has raised the concern of the international community about the deteriorating security situation in Sudan.

The Egyptian government continues to closely follow the situation in Sudan, and calls on all concerned parties to exercise restraint and avoid violence and escalation, and stresses the importance of all parties’ commitment to a constructive political dialogue that seeks to achieve stability and development in Sudan.

The Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs announces the start of new procedures

According to the sources in “Al-Arabiya” and “Al-Hadath”, coordination was made with the Sudanese side to open an investigation into the killing of a member of the Egyptian embassy as a result of the clashes.

Cairo also requested more clarifications about the circumstances of the accident, and the body of an assistant to the administrative attaché will be transported on an Egyptian plane for burial in his country.

The Egyptian authorities also announced tightening security measures around the Egyptian embassy in coordination with the Sudanese side, and securing the Egyptian embassy’s personnel and members during the coming hours.

The Sudanese army also coordinates with the Egyptian side to secure the movements of members of the Egyptian diplomatic mission.

More than 420 dead

Remember the recent events taking place in Sudan between the army led by Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan and the Rapid Support Forces led by Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo. These clashes, which began on April 15, resulted in the killing of more than 420 people and the injury of 3,700 others, and prompted tens of thousands of people to flee from the areas of clashes, whether towards other countries or towards Chad and Egypt.

On Sunday, the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported that “436 citizens were evacuated from Sudan through land evacuation, in coordination with the Sudanese authorities.”

Both sides of the conflict have been accused of violating the armistice and targeting civilians, while fighting is expected to resume again with the decline in evacuations. There are fears of the continuation and expansion of the war, especially with Al-Burhan and Hamidti’s insistence on defeating each other.

However, diplomatic efforts are working to calm tensions and work towards a cease-fire and an end to the conflict between the conflicting parties. The United Nations and the international community in general have called for calm and a peaceful solution to the crisis in Sudan.

In this regard, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry expressed Egypt’s support for international efforts to resolve the crisis in Sudan and called for adherence to a ceasefire and work to find a peaceful solution to the conflict.

Sudan’s neighboring countries, such as Egypt, Chad, Eritrea and Ethiopia, hope to resolve the crisis in Sudan peacefully and avoid its negative repercussions on the entire region.

It is noteworthy that relations between Sudan and Egypt have witnessed tension in recent months, as Khartoum accused Cairo of interfering in its internal affairs and supporting opposition groups, while Egypt accused Sudan of supporting armed groups in the Darfur region.

At the conclusion of the two-day visit to Khartoum, the Egyptian diplomatic figures said that they discussed many common issues between the two countries, including regional and international issues, in addition to the challenges Sudan faces and ways to support its developmental and political path.

Egypt affirmed its support for Sudan in the current period, and its emphasis on the importance of supporting the political track in Sudan and supporting the efforts made by the transitional government in this regard.
