Press Release

The Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the Republic of Djibouti, also the Chairman of the Ministerial IGAD Council, was informed, in his capacity as the Republic of Djibouti’s President of the current IGAD session, through a written letter. The Government of the Republic of Sudan has decided to suspend engagement and freeze dealings with IGAD regarding the current crisis in Sudan. This decision comes in light of the organization’s transgressions by involving the situation in Sudan in the agenda of the forty-second extraordinary summit of IGAD Heads of State and Government, scheduled to be held in the Ugandan capital, Kampala, on Thursday, January 18, 2024, without consulting Sudan and inviting the militia leader to attend the emergency summit in Kampala. This action is deemed a serious precedent in the history of IGAD and regional and international organizations. Sudan considers it a violation of its sovereignty and a serious breach of IGAD charters and the rules governing the work of international and regional organizations.
