UAE refutes allegations of supplying arms to warring parties in Sudan

The UAE denied any involvement or provision of weapons to either side in the Sudanese conflict that erupted in April between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF).

UAE’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that their country “denies the allegations of taking sides in any of the parties involved in the Sudan conflict.” The ministry affirmed that they “have not provided any weapons or ammunition to any of the warring parties in Sudan since the conflict erupted.”

And continued: “We affirm our country’s non-alignment with any party in the conflict in Sudan, and we seek to end the conflict and call for respect for the sovereignty of the country.”

The UAE has pointed out that since the beginning of the conflict in Sudan, it has been calling for de-escalation, cessation of hostilities, and the initiation of diplomatic dialogue. It will continue to support all efforts aimed at achieving security there until a ceasefire is ensured. And also emphasized its ongoing humanitarian efforts to alleviate suffering in Sudan.

Since mid-April, the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) have been engaged in conflicts that successive ceasefires have failed to halt.

The clashes between rival groups have resulted in over 3,000 casualties, with the majority being civilians, and have caused more than 4 million internally displaced persons and refugees both within and outside the country.
