Le commandant en second du Soudan – le général Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo « Hemedti » – a annoncé mercredi que son pays était prêt à accueillir une base militaire russe sur la mer Rouge, ou une base militaire pour tout autre pays.

His speech came hours after the deputy head of the ruling sovereign council landed back in Khartoum, ending a week-long trip that he began in Moscow on the eve of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

During the visit, Hemedti expressed public support for the invasion, saying that Russia “has the right to defend its people and citizens in accordance with the constitution and the law,” a position that was not echoed by the head of the coup government General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan. LINK TO ARTICLE
