The Sudanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs said yesterday that it is not responsible for any visits or discussions held by officials outside the state's official foreign policies and which bypass the executive body.

This comes after local media reported on Saturday that a Sudanese delegation visited Israel, led by Lieutenant-General Mohamed Hamdan Daglo, deputy head of Sudan's ruling military council and chief of the Rapid Support Forces and Lt. General Mirghani Idris the Director-General of Sudan's Military Industry.

In its statement, the ministry confirmed that it is "the only party concerned with foreign relations in accordance with the constitutional document, international custom and cabinet decisions," adding that it "performs its tasks and role in coordinating external work with all government agencies, professionally and institutionally."

The ministry's statement comes at a time of rising tension between the military and civilian components of the transitional authority, after military leaders said they had foiled an attempted coup in the country last month.

Sudan officials agreed to normalise ties with the occupation state of Israel last year and in return the US removed Khartoum from its list of state sponsors of terrorism.
