In a statement released early on Thursday, the Saudi Foreign Ministry strongly denounced an attack on the country’s embassy in Sudan as well as Saudi staff members’ homes there.
According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the apartment and belongings of Saudi embassy workers as well as the building itself were destroyed.
In the “strongest terms possible of the sabotage and tampering carried out by some armed groups,” the Ministry emphasized the Kingdom’s displeasure, according to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).
The SPA continued, “stressing the importance of confronting these armed groups that are trying to undermine the return of security and stability to Sudan and its brotherly people,” in which the Kingdom expressed its categorical rejection of all forms of violence and sabotage against diplomatic missions and representations.
