Egypt is closely following up the recent developments in Sudan, stressing the importance of achieving stability and security for the Sudanese people, preserving their capabilities, and overcoming the current challenges in a manner that guarantees the safety of the neighboring country, according to a statement by the Egyptian Foreign Ministry on Monday.
The statement confirmed that the security and stability of Sudan is an integral part of the security and stability of Egypt and the whole Arab region.
Egypt called – according to the statement- all the Sudanese parties to exercise restraint, to uphold the higher interest of the country and national consensus.
“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 the 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 the internet from mobile phones.
