Sudan declares UN envoy persona non grata

The move comes after army chief Abdel Fattah al-Burhan accused Volker Perthes of inflaming the fighting between the warring factions in Sudan.
Ednews informs via DW that Sudan has declared Volker Perthes, the representative of the UN secretary-general and head of the UNITAMS mission, persona non grata.
"The Government of the Republic of Sudan has notified the Secretary-General of the United Nations that it has declared Mr. Volker Perthes ... persona non grata as of today," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.
Perthes was in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Thursday for a series of diplomatic talks, according to the UN mission's Twitter feed.
