The Federal Government of Somalia has strongly condemned the assassination attempt on Prime Minister of Sudan, Abdallah Hamdouk on Monday.
Sudan’s prime minister survived an assassination attempt after an explosion went off near his convoy in the capital of Khartoum, Sudan’s state media said.
In a statement issued on Monday by Somalia’s ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation condemned the attack, and expressed its stand and solidarity with the Sudan government in its fight against violence and extremism.
Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdouk has on his part assured the attack will only strengthen the wheel of change in the country.
“I would like to assure the people of Sudan that I am safe and in good shape. Rest assured that what happened today will not stand in the way of our transition, instead it is an additional push to the wheel of change in Sudan.” He said.
Officials from Khartoum have also confirmed that no one was hurt in the attack.
“An explosion hit as Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok’s car was driving by but thank God no one was hurt,” Ali Bakhit, the prime minister’s office director, said on Monday.
