The UN condemns the targeting of the Turkish ambassador’s car


On Monday, the United Nations condemned the attack that targeted a diplomatic vehicle carrying the Turkish ambassador to Khartoum, Ismail Chopanoglu.

This came in the response of the organization’s deputy spokesman, Farhan Haq, to a question about the attack that targeted the Turkish ambassador’s convoy on Saturday.

Haq said, “We condemn all forms of attacks against diplomatic personnel, including the attack that targeted the Turkish diplomatic convoy over the weekend.”


He pointed out the need for a detailed investigation to uncover the circumstances of such attacks.

On Sunday, the Sudanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemned the attack on the convoy of the Turkish ambassador to Khartoum, and accused the Rapid Support Forces of carrying it out.

On the other hand, the Rapid Support Forces denied the accusation and said in a statement via Twitter that they “were able to evacuate the ambassador and his delegation to a safe place.”

And Turkish diplomatic sources reported on Saturday that the embassy car in the convoy of Ambassador Choban Oglu came under fire.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu confirmed that there were no injuries to any of the ambassador, guards or special forces.

Since last April 15, clashes have continued in states in Sudan between the army and the “rapid support” forces, in which the two sides exchanged accusations of being responsible for them, after teams affiliated with each went to control centers belonging to the other.
