Malik Aqar Air, met the ambassadors of the African Group in Uganda

Deputy Head of the Transitional Sovereignty Council, Malik Aqar Air, met today with the ambassadors of the African Group in Uganda at the Sudanese Embassy in Uganda. The meeting, attended by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs representative Ambassador Hussein Awad and Sudan’s Ambassador to Uganda Ahmed Ibrahim Ahmed, included a detailed briefing on the ongoing war developments in Sudan.

Ambassador Ahmed Ibrahim Ahmed highlighted that the Deputy Head of the Sovereignty Council clarified to the African diplomatic missions in Uganda that the current conflict in Sudan is an occupation war involving militias supported by several countries. The violations include various forms of atrocities such as killings, sexual violence, using rape as a weapon, ethnic cleansing, genocide, infrastructure destruction, and occupation of citizens’ homes, leading to the complete destruction of agricultural inputs for the Jazeera project.

He emphasized the attempt to exploit the humanitarian issue for political purposes and called for comprehensive consideration of the humanitarian situation, including violations and the need for humanitarian aid. The Deputy Head of the Sovereignty Council urged rejecting the integration of the humanitarian issue into political agendas, especially in African conflicts with international interventions.

The Deputy Head affirmed the Sudanese government’s commitment to facilitating the work of international humanitarian organizations despite complex security conditions and the needs of many affected Sudanese citizens. He pointed out that the Sudanese people are aware that this war is a new form of colonization through the Rapid Support Forces militia. The slogans raised by the militia and its allies are seen as an assault on Islamists and the destruction of the 56th state, targeting innocent citizens.

The Deputy Head presented a roadmap for ending the war to the ambassadors and mission heads, emphasizing Sudan’s engagement with any initiative based on respecting its sovereignty. He clarified that the government would not engage in any initiative that diminishes Sudan’s sovereignty and threatens its national security. The Sudanese government remains open to regional initiatives to address the crisis and the issue of foreigners exiting Sudan.

The meeting concluded with the screening of a film documenting the violations committed by the rebel Rapid Support Forces against Sudanese and international laws on human rights and humanitarian law.
