Regarding the situation in Sudan, the Arab Parliament expressed solidarity with the Sudanese people in their ordeal, calling for peaceful dialogue to defuse the current crisis and work to restore stability in Sudan as soon as possible.

While stressing the unity of the Sudanese territories, the preservation of the Sudanese army and the rejection of external interference, it appreciated Arab and international efforts spared to stop the bloodshed.

In its plenary session, the Arab Parliament discussed draft resolutions and laws submitted by parliamentary committees after their preparatory meetings for the session to follow up and monitor all events and political developments in the Arab countries during the current year.
