His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, directed the dispatch of urgent humanitarian aid to the brotherly Sudanese displaced citizens affected by the recent conflict in their country.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid affirmed that the UAE is always keen to support its brotherly countries. His Highness stressed the depth of the bilateral relations between the UAE and the Sudan, and the cultural and historical ties between both countries.
