Sudanese military assistant commander asks Emirati ambassador to leave the country

KHARTOUM – Sudanese Armed Forces Assistant Commander-in-Chief Yasser al-Atta has condemned the UAE ambassador’s presence in the country and called on him to leave Sudan.

He noted that Sudan’s Sovereign Council has directed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to file complaints against countries it says have committed crimes against the Sudanese people.

This came just days after al-Atta attacked United Arab Emirates (UAE) President Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, accusing him of provoking war in the country.

“The UAE government is trying to seize agricultural land, mineral resources and the country’s ports,” he said, adding that “Mohammed bin Zayed has acquired rapid support forces to carry out his plans.”

Last November, the army’s deputy commander condemned what appeared to be UAE interference in Sudan’s war. He said Abu Dhabi was supporting forces led by former Sovereign Council Vice-President Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo (Hemedi) with weapons through African airports.
