A senior Sudanese official on Saturday called on Ethiopia not to involve Sudan in its internal conflicts.

Abu Haja said: “Sudan and its army do not interfere in the internal problems of neighboring Ethiopia, and we call on the Ethiopian leaders to work for the resolution of their conflicts, without Sudan being involved” .
And to add: “we have followed the statements attributed to the Ethiopian army referring to the support of the Sudanese armed forces to armed groups which have attempted sabotage (of the Renaissance dam), and we affirm that this accusation is unfounded”.

The Ethiopian army has reported clashes between its forces and the armed group, which left 50 dead and 70 injured among elements of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Tigray.
