The Security Council session in New York yesterday, Tuesday, witnessed a sharp debate between representatives of Sudan and the UAE over responsibility for fueling the conflict in Sudan.

Sudan’s representative to the United Nations, Al-Harith Idris, renewed his accusation of the UAE of supporting “rapid support,” claiming that his country’s government has evidence of this.

On the other hand, the UAE representative to the United Nations, Mohammed Abu Shehab, described the Sudanese representative’s accusations as “ridiculous,” pointing out that the Sudanese ambassador represents the Sudanese army, which is one of the parties to the conflict, pointing out that the UAE provides humanitarian support to Sudan.

Abu Shihab wondered why the Sudanese army did not participate in the Jeddah talks if it was seeking to stop the conflict and the suffering of civilians, accusing the Sudanese side of obstructing the flow of aid and exploiting an international platform such as the Security Council for bidding instead of stopping the conflict.

The Sudanese delegate responded that whoever wants to make peace in Sudan must come with pure intentions, stressing that the UAE sponsors organized and ethnic terrorism in Sudan, based on the report of the expert committee from December 2023.

For his part, the UAE representative requested another intervention in which he said that exploiting the international platform to spread false accusations against the UAE to distract attention from violations on the ground is a shameful violation.

He stressed that the only solution to the conflict in Sudan is the negotiating table, not military victory.
