Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan reiterated the Kingdom’s grave concerns over an escalation in tensions between warring factions in Sudan.

He made his remarks while participating at the 33rd Arab League Summit held in the Bahraini capital, Manama.

The foreign minister urged the two sides, the Sudanese Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Forces, to commit to a ceasefire, reiterating Saudi Arabia’s call for a return to dialogue.

He also called for an end to further civilian suffering and the country’s devastating humanitarian situation.

Saudi Arabia, alongside the US, is leading mediation efforts to urge the two Sudanese sides to end the war.

On the subject of the war in Gaza, Prince Faisal said Saudi Arabia has warned of dangerous repercussions of Israel’s widening of its scope of operations in its campaign against Hamas.

He reiterated the Kingdom’s calls for the international community to intervene immediately to stop the war.

Regarding Yemen, Prince Faisal affirmed Saudi Arabia’s full support for efforts to achieve peace in the country, and to reach a comprehensive political solution through dialogue and consultation between the warring parties, which will start the process of economic development and recovery.
