Sudan – Closure of the Embassy (24 April 2023)


The French Embassy in Sudan is closed until further notice. It is no longer a meeting point for people wishing to leave Khartoum.

The French Embassy will continue its activities from Paris under the responsibility of the Ambassador. France is mobilized to facilitate a ceasefire and the resumption of a political transition process in Sudan. It fully supports the coordination mechanism under the aegis of the African Union, IGAD, the Arab League, the European Union and the United Nations. It calls on all parties to end the fighting, allow humanitarian access, spare civilian lives and return to the path of political dialogue.
