Khartoum, May 30 (SUNA) – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs Saturday summoned the Ethiopian Charge d’Affaires to Khartoum and protested over the incursion of Ethiopian militias supported by the Ethiopian army and their assault on the Sudanese citizens and the Armed Forces inside the Sudanese territories, a matter which led to the martyrdom and wounding of a number of Sudanese officers and members of the Armed Forces and citizens, including children.

The Neighboring Countries Department at the ministry has conveyed to the Ethiopian Charge d’Affaires Sudan government condemnation and rejection of this heinous attack, which came at a time when preparations were taking place in Khartoum to hold the second meeting of the high-level joint committee on the border issues, due to be co-chaired by the Sudanese Minister of the Cabinet Affairs and the Ethiopian Deputy Prime Minister.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs demanded that measures should be taken to stop such attacks, and warned that the sustainability and progress of the cooperation between the two countries must be based on mutual respect for the sovereignty, independence and borders of each of them and the right of their peoples to live in safety and peace and to use their natural and economic resources without the encroachment or aggression of any party on the other.
