A number of Sudanese MPs urged President Omar al-Bachir to withdraw the country’s troops fighting in Yemen as part of a wider coalition led by the Saudi Arabia.
The country’s involvement in the bloody Yemeni war has been condemned as ‘unconstitutional’ by the Allinace for Change political party in Sudan.
“Dispatching Sudanese army soldiers and members of the Rapid Support Forces is an unconstitutional measure, and carried out without having been remitted to the parliament,” the lawmakers said in a statement on Sunday.
“Sudan should not interfere in the affairs of other countries,” Abulgasim Burtom, the chairman of the Alliance for Change, said. “The Interim Constitution of Sudan is clear: The president of the Republic has no right to decide to send an army [to fight] abroad.”
According to the Yemini Ministry of Human Rights, up to 600,000 people have been killed and injured since the Saudi-led coalition waged a war to reinstate the former Yemini regime.
