Sudanese Defense Minister Awad Ibn Ouf said on Monday that it was Sudan’s “moral obligation” to participate in the Yemen war alongside the Arab coalition.
Sudan has been a part of the Arab coalition since 2015, in an effort to support Yemen’s legitimate President Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi, after Iranian-backed Houthi militias exiled him from Sanaa.
Ibn Ouf discussed the possibility of further cooperation with Saudi Arabia with the kingdom’s ambassador to Khartoum Ali bin Hassan Jaafar, according to the Sudan Tribune.
After the meeting, a statement was released by Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir assuring Saudi officials that Sudan will continue to fight the Houthi militia regardless of the current economic situation in the country.
