Iran's Foreign Minister described the current situation in Sudan as worrying and emphasized that if there is no proper provision, its scope will spread to the region, the Sudanese territory in particular.

Iran PressIran News: "Unfortunately, we are witnessing some external interference and provocation in this crisis. Internal dialogue and understanding are the most appropriate option for going through this crisis," Hossein Amir-Abdollahian wrote on his Twitter account on Friday.

Hundreds of people have been killed and thousands more wounded since a long-simmering power struggle between the Sudanese army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) erupted into conflict on 15 April. The UN believes the actual number of casualties to be far higher.

The fighting in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, has so far seen RSF forces fan out across the city as the army tries to target them primarily by using airstrikes from drones and fighter jets.

The conflict has sent tens of thousands of people fleeing across Sudan’s borders and prompted warnings the country could disintegrate, destabilizing a volatile region and prompting foreign governments to scramble to evacuate their nationals.
