The Libyan Foreign Ministry condemns the storming of its embassy in Khartoum and the looting of its contents


In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs called on the warring parties in Sudan to renounce violence and fighting and to show a sense of responsibility for the unity of Sudan, and urged the protection of diplomatic missions and their headquarters.

The Libyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned, on Tuesday, the storming of its embassy in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, whose buildings were looted and vandalized.

The ministry’s statement stated that it “condemns the storming of the Libyan embassy building in Khartoum and the looting of its contents,” whose staff were evacuated due to the violence.

The Libyan ministry expressed its “deep regret and resentment of such actions,” and said that it “calls on the warring parties in Sudan to renounce violence and to protect diplomatic missions and their headquarters,” in accordance with the Vienna Convention, which “provides for the need to provide protection for embassies and diplomatic missions.”

In its statement, Libya also indicated its “extreme concern” for the stability of Sudan and its people, but renewed its “condemnation of the repeated attacks on the headquarters of some diplomatic missions” in the Sudanese capital.

On Thursday, the Libyan ministry condemned the attack on the office of the Libyan military attache in Khartoum, calling for “the pursuit of those proven to be involved in this criminal act.”

Prior to that, several countries, including Saudi Arabia and Qatar, denounced the attacks and looting of their embassies in Khartoum.

The last group of Libyan nationals were evacuated from Sudan on May 13, according to the Libyan embassy in Khartoum.

The battles continue in Sudan on Tuesday between the army led by Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan and the Rapid Support Forces led by Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, despite the extension of the truce that was never adhered to, in an attempt to transport vital humanitarian aid to this country, which is on the verge of famine.

The war, which broke out on April 15, has claimed more than 1,800 lives, according to the NGO ACLED, and displaced some 1.5 million people, according to the United Nations.
