Sudan: authorities summon Ethiopian envoy over weapons remarks

Sudan’s foreign ministry has summoned Ethiopian ambassador Yibeltal Aemeru after he accused Khartoum of violating diplomatic norms, the official Sudanese news agency (Suna) reported.

According to the news agency, the ambassador told local media that “Ethiopian forces had shot down a plane carrying weapons for the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) forces, which violated Ethiopian airspace through Sudan.”

A director at the Sudanese foreign ministry, Ambassador Fadl Abdallah Fadl, said the allegations “violates the normal diplomatic traditions”.

Sudan had in the past denied Ethiopian claims that it supports the TPLF, which has been fighting the Ethiopian government in the northern Tigray region since November 2020.
