Sudan’s Foreign Minister Ali al-Sadiq Dismissed: State television

Cabinet assigns ambassador Hussein Awad Ali Mohammed to foreign minister duties, says statement

The Sudanese Cabinet relieved Foreign Minister Ali al-Sadiq on Wednesday and assigned Deputy Minister Hussein Awad to his duties, the official television station said in a statement.

The Cabinet issued the decision without specifying the reasons.

Abdel Fattah al-Burhan appointed al-Sadiq the foreign minister on Jan. 21, 2022, as part of a Cabinet with 15 ministers, following al-Burhan’s exceptional measures on Oct. 25, 2021, which included the dissolution of the Sovereignty Council and the Transitional Government and the declaration of a state of emergency.

Awad was appointed deputy foreign minister in December and previously served as ambassador to Zambia and Uganda.
