CAIRO – 7 August 2023: Sudanese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Khaled Ibrahim described the Sudanese-Egyptian relations as ‘firm’ on Monday.

He expressed his thanks in televised statements to Egypt and President Abdel Fattah al Sisi for supporting the Sudanese people.

Ibrahim noted, that Egypt is ‘the closest country to Sudan’, and that Egypt’s understanding for the events in Sudan, confirms the depth of relations between the two brotherly countries.

He pointed out that the Sudanese Foreign Ministry is open to all initiatives, and that there is communication between Sudan and all of its neighboring countries.

He also emphasized Sudan's sovereignty and its territorial integrity, rejecting any external interference to deal with the crisis, saying that it is an ‘internal Sudanese affair’

Earlier on Monday, Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said that Sudan's Neighboring Countries initiative is a testimony to the unity of purpose, firm intentions and serious political will to help Sudan to get out of its ordeal by putting an end to such a devastating war.

Speaking at the first meeting of the ministerial mechanism, in Chad, Shoukry said: "Today's meeting aims to develop the resolutions of Cairo Summit on Sudan's seven neighboring countries - which took place on July 13 - into an executive vision and harmonized steps contributing to handling the causes of the current crisis, stopping the bloodshed of the Sudanese people, upholding the unity of the State and its institutions, along with cushioning the negative impacts of the crisis on the neighboring countries."

The meeting of the ministerial mechanism is anticipated by million of Sudanese people, who are intimidated daily by the unabated fighting nationwide, Shoukry said.

He added that: "Millions of hopeful Sudanese people; those who are remaining in their homeland, the ones who are abroad and those who fled the scourge of war to the neighboring countries, deem the initiative as the last resort".
