Sudan want Iranian diplomatic members out of Khartoum in 14 days

Sudan on Monday urged members of the Iranian diplomatic mission in Khartoum to leave the country in two weeks after Sudan’s earlier decision to cut off its diplomatic ties with Tehran.

Sudan’s Foreign Ministry on Monday summoned the acting Iranian Charge d’Affaires in Khartoum and conveyed to her Sudan’s decision to sever diplomatic ties.

“Ambassador Dafalla Al-Haj Ali, Acting Foreign Ministry Undersecretary, conveyed to the Iranian Charge d’Affaires in Khartoum that Sudan avails the members of the Iranian diplomatic mission a period of maximum two weeks to leave the country,” the ministry said in a press release Monday.

Earlier on Monday, Sudan officially declared severing of its diplomatic ties with Iran in solidarity with Saudi Arabia.

“In solidarity with the brotherly Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the face of the Iranian plots, Sudan declares immediate severing of diplomatic ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran,” the ministry said in a statement.

“The decision came in the wake of the heinous attack against the Embassy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in Tehran and its Consulate in Mashhad town,” it added.
