The Saudi Crown Prince Assures Al-Burhan Not to Compromise the Stability of Sudan

A bilateral meeting was held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Friday, between the head of the Sudanese coup sovereignty council, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, during which they exchanged pledges and commitments on the course of the situation in Sudan in light of the war that broke out between the army and the Rapid Support Forces since mid-April.

According to the Sovereignty Council’s media, during the meeting, they discussed strengthening bilateral relations and ways to support prospects for joint cooperation between Khartoum and Riyadh, in the interest of the two brotherly peoples.

Al-Burhan “briefed the Saudi crown prince on developments in Sudan, against the backdrop of the rebellion of the terrorist Rapid Support Militia against the state, which resulted in targeting civilians, killing innocent unarmed people, and sabotaging vital institutions and infrastructure projects”, he said.

Al-Burhan stressed that despite all the violations practiced by this terrorist militia, the government of Sudan responded by sitting with it in the Jeddah pulpit in order to end the suffering of the Sudanese, and an agreement was reached last May under which these forces left the homes of citizens to agreed sites, but they did not comply and continued their war on innocent citizens in Khartoum and Darfur.

Al-Burhan reiterated Sudan’s commitment to the Jeddah platform as a mechanism to address the Sudanese crisis, according to the statement.

The statement of the Sovereignty Council stated that the Saudi Crown Prince affirmed the Kingdom’s support for Sudan and its unity, security and territorial integrity, and explained that Sudan is an important country for the Kingdom, and its stability and cohesion cannot be compromised.

His Highness said that the Kingdom’s efforts to reach peace in Sudan are a commitment and responsibility towards this brotherly country, and stressed that these efforts will continue until they bear fruit, and stressed that the division or fragmentation of Sudan is a red line for Saudi Arabia.

Bin Salman stressed that they look forward to establishing stability and peace in Sudan soon because of the importance Sudan represents in the region and the promised much good, prosperity, growth and development – according to the statement.
