Khalid AlSheikh : The Kenyan president was criticized for his stance towards Sudan

Khartoum 16-7 SUNA
The official spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
Khaled Al-Sheikh, said in response to a question (by SUNA) about the significance of the phone call between Kenyan President William Ruto and the President of the Transitional Sovereignty Council, Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan.
He said, “The call was an opportunity for Mr. President Al-Burhan to explain to his Kenyan side the reasons behind Sudan’s position rejecting Kenya’s presidency of the Quartet, because originally it was not its president when it was a tripartite, and its presidency was suspicious.

The Foreign Ministry spokesman said that in the aftermath of the Quartet summit in Addis Ababa and the statements issued after that by the Kenyan president, the usual diplomatic interaction and mutual respect between heads of state, especially countries that are united by one regional organization, are avoided.
The Spokesman added that it seems that the Kenyan President was subjected to internal and external criticism for his biased position towards the rebellion in Sudan, and therefore he was aware of the size of the diplomatic error he had committed and wanted to atone for that by contacting the President of the Sovereignty Council yesterday evening.
It should be noted that the call came at the initiative of the Kenyan President
For his part, the Designated Foreign Minister, Ambassador Ali Al-Sadiq, confirmed to SUNA that Roto’s contact with President Al-Burhan does not change anything in Sudan’s declared position in rejecting Kenya’s presidency of the Quartet mechanism of IGAD.
