“The government of Sudan, in a letter to the United Nations, on Thursday asked it to ‘immediately terminate’ its political mission, UNITAMS, in the country. ‘[The] government of Sudan requested that the United Nations immediately terminate the UNITAMS mission. At the same time, we would like to assure you that the Government of Sudan is committed to engaging constructively with the Security Council and the Secretariat,’ Sudan’s acting Foreign Minister Ali Sadeq, told the UN Security Council in the letter seen by the Reuters and dpa news agencies. The UNITAMS mission began in Sudan in 2020 and employs more than 400 civilians. … The relationship between the Sudanese government and the UN has been tense since a war erupted in the country on April 15.” (11/17/23)
