CAIRO – 25 October 2021: Secretary-General of the Arab League Ahmed Aboul Gheit expressed deep concern about the developments in Sudan.

In a statement, Aboul Gheit called on all Sudanese parties to fully comply with the constitutional document signed in August 2019 with the participation of the international community and the Arab League, as well as the 2020 Juba Peace Agreement.

An official source in the General Secretariat stated that "there are no problems that cannot be resolved without dialogue”.

The source also called on all parties to respect all decisions and agreements that were agreed upon regarding the transitional period, leading to holding elections on their scheduled dates.

The source also called for refraining from any measures that would disrupt the transitional period or destabilize Sudan.

Army troops have arrested Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok on Monday and moved him to an unknown place, the Sudanese Ministry of Information said in a statement.

In an earlier statement by the ministry on Thursday, it said that joint armed forces placed Hamdok under house arrest.

The ministry said Hamdok called on Sudanese people in a statement to adhere to peacefulness and rush to streets to defend their revolution.

Joint armed forces also stormed the Sudanese Radio and Television headquarters in Omdurman and detained a number of workers, according to the ministry.

The ministry also noted that the forces closed bridges and blocked internet from mobile phones.
