Sudanese protesters have called for the expulsion of the United Nation’s representative to Sudan and a stop to foreign interference in the country’s internal affairs.

Protesters from civilian groups gathered outside the United Nations office in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, to condemn the interference of foreign countries in their country’s internal affairs.

The demonstrators were opposed to UN efforts to mediate between the country’s military and civilian leaders following last year’s military coup.

They expressed opposition to a transitional constitution proposed by the Sudanese Bar Association, calling for a civilian government to pull the country out of its current political crisis. 


“Sudanese can solve their own problems without the interference of foreign embassies and representatives in Khartoum,” demonstrators present at the rally told Iran Press.

The protesters at the rally, who said that the objective of the foreign powers in Sudan was to impose a mandate on the Sudanese nation and exploit their resources, demanded the expulsion of the UN’s Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Sudan and Head of the United Nations Integrated Transition Assistance Mission in Sudan, Volker Perthes.

Protesters also held placards reading, “No to foreign interference” and “Volker out,” in reference to the UN’s Khartoum envoy Perthes. 

The recent protests have pitted the country’s civilian parties against the coup leader General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan. 

In the meantime, Sudanese protesters have been staging rallies regularly on a nearly weekly basis to protest to the coup that derailed the transition to civilian rule and saw the junta assume power. (
