UAE Minister of State Anwar Gargash responded to recent criticism by the Sudanese Communist Party against Abu Dhabi and Riyadh.
Gargash expressed, in a tweet, regret at the speech of the political secretary of the Sudanese Communist Party, Mohammed Mukhtar Al-Khatib, especially regarding his negative handling of the UAE and Saudi role in supporting stability and peaceful transition in Sudan.
Gargash explained that Al-Khatib's comments: "are based on used and abused ideological concepts associated with his party."
He continued: "Our relationship with Khartoum is historic, and the Arab role in supporting Sudan in its current circumstances is necessary."
It is noteworthy that Al-Khatib delivered a speech in the Omdurman region, last Friday, accusing the UAE and Saudi Arabia of "quick intervention during the first days of the uprising" in Sudan against Al-Bashir regime.
