Sudan calls the storming of the Saudi embassy in Tehran a "brutal incident" that violates international law.
Sudan has “condemned in the strongest terms the Iranian hostile practices against the diplomatic missions of the kingdom” of Saudi Arabia “in clear violation of international law,” a Foreign Ministry statement says.
The ministry says its decision to break diplomatic ties with Iran was taken “on the background of the brutal incident of the attack on the embassy of Saudi Arabia in Tehran and its consulate in the city of Mashhad."
“In solidarity with the sister kingdom of Saudi Arabia in confronting the Iranian plans, Sudan's government announces the severance of diplomatic relations with the Islamic republic of Iran immediately,” the ministry says.
