Foreign Ministry’s Note

The Italian Ambassador to Sudan, Michele Tommasi, together with some collaborators and two Carabinieri’s units, has landed this morning in Addis Ababa, where the Italian Embassy in Khartoum will be temporarily re-established at our Diplomatic Mission in Ethiopia.

The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Antonio Tajani, said: “Although our Embassy in Khartoum is physically closed, following the evacuation operations carried out on 24 April by an Air Force flight, Ambassador Tommasi and our staff will continue to ensure the full operation of the Embassy in Addis Ababa, in order to best guarantee Italy’s contribution to the peace-building efforts in Sudan.”

As noted on 24 May at the International Donors’ Conference on the humanitarian crisis in the Horn of Africa, co-organised by Italy, the Deputy Prime Minister expressed deep concern about the severe deterioration of the humanitarian and security situation in Sudan, where fighting has continued over the past week, despite the preliminary ceasefire signed on 20 May at the Jeddah talks facilitated by the United States and Saudi Arabia. Minister Tajani said: “In Sudan, the ceasefire remains the main objective and Italy will make every effort to stabilise the country and prevent migration risks”.
