Sudan has summoned Libya’s chargé d’affaires to protest against claims made by a Libyan army official that Khartoum was supporting militias in Libya, reports Worldbulletin.
A statement from the Sudanese ministry said:
“Foreign Ministry Undersecretary Abdullah al-Azraq summoned the Libyan chargé d’affaires to officially deliver Sudan’s objection on media remarks made by a Libyan army officer, in which he accused Sudan of supporting extremist groups in Libya.
“Sudan stands at the same distance from all sides in Libya and is ready to play a mediating role.”
Last month, Libyan Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni [Al-Thani, al-Thanay] accused both Sudan and Qatar of arming the Libya Dawn militia, and threatened to sever ties with both countries if they continued to support the militia.
