Sudan affirmed its rejection and objection to the decision of the Chairperson of the African Commission, Moussa Faki Mohamed, to grant "Israel" the observer status in the African Union, before consulting with member states.

The Sudanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement: "Our position is clear regarding the attempt to give "Israel" the status of an observer member of the African Union, which is the total rejection and objection to the decision of the Chairperson of the Commission to grant the status of an observer to "Israel" before consulting with member states, and that this matter caused a dispute between the Commission and the members."

The ministry stressed that "this approach is rejected and contradicts the essence of the principles of the African Union, and it ignites the spirit of cooperation, mutual respect and consensus, which has made the organization a prominent and advanced place in international forums."

The Sudanese statement indicated that the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Maryam Al-Sadiq Al-Mahdi, "apologized for participating in the work of the 39th session of the Executive Council of the African Union, as it is associated with internal tasks related to urgent national issues, and the Undersecretary of Foreign Affairs, Mohamed Sharif Abdullah, is participating on her behalf."
