GCC, AP chiefs deplore strongly attack on Kuwait diplomat residence in Khartoum

Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Jassem Al-Budaiwi and President of the Arab Parliament (AP) Adel Al-Asoumi expressed Monday their strong condemnation and denunciation of the attack and sabotage acts on head of the military office’s residence at the Kuwaiti embassy in Khartoum.

In a statement, Al-Budaiwi stressed the necessity of respecting the international accords and diplomatic norms that guarantee the safety of the diplomatic missions.

He called on all the Sudanese parties to take immediate and urgent measures to protect the diplomats and diplomatic missions.

Meanwhile, Al-Asoumi said that the act runs counter to all international laws and norms that regulate the diplomatic missions’ action and stipulate full protection to those missions.

Repeated storming of, and sabotage acts on, the diplomatic and consular missions of more than Arab countries during the last period require action from the Sudanese authorities and all concerned parties to provide full protection to all consular and diplomatic missions and to facilitate their action, amid these “critical” conditions, Al-Asoumi stressed. Earlier in the day, Kuwait’s Foreign Ministry declared that the residence of the head of the military office at the Kuwaiti embassy in Khartoum was attacked and sabotaged.
