KHARTOUM, Dec. 23 (Xinhua) -- Sudan's Foreign Ministry on Sunday summoned Kuwaiti ambassador to Khartoum after Kuwaiti embassy asked its citizens not to travel to Sudan.
Undersecretary of Sudanese Foreign Ministry, Yasir Khidir, summoned the Kuwaiti Ambassador to Khartoum, Bassam Mohammed Al-Qabandi, in the wake of requests of the embassy that Kuwaiti citizens do not travel to Sudan and those in Sudan to leave.
According to the ministry's statement, the Kuwaiti ambassador explained that the measure did not mean any signal of political dimension or the unsafety of Sudan.
It meant to alert some Kuwaitians who travel to Sudan for charity or hunting without knowledge of the embassy because there are some events that may endanger their lives.
Over the past few days, various areas in Sudan including Khartoum have been witnessing popular protests against the deteriorating economic conditions and price hikes of basic commodities.
