"Qatar has led a conspiracy against the Transitional Military Council that was formed after Bashir was removed, when it sent its foreign minister to visit Sudan without notifying the leadership in Khartoum, which led them to refuse to receive him," Sudan's first deputy chairman, Mohamed Hamidati, said in a televised interview on a local channel in Khartoum.
He continued: "We were surprised in April, before last, that the Qatari foreign minister was on his way to Sudan, and we asked about the behavior of Doha, whose foreign minister is sending without notifying us, so we made an immediate decision not to receive him and prevent his plane from landing."
Hamidati considered that what Qatar did was a challenge to Sudan, including a malicious conspiracy, which was intended to discord between the Transitional Military Council at that time.
He hinted that the incident of the Qatari foreign minister was caused by elements of the previous regime within the military council, and they falsely claimed that the council president, Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, was aware of the visit.
"But Al-Burhan confirmed to me at the same moment that he was not aware of the visit, and we agreed not to receive the Qatari minister," he said.
On the other hand, Hamidati accused parties of trying to sow sedition between the Rapid Support Forces and defame them by being involved in the Libyan conflict and being involved in the process of breaking up the Khartoum sit-in.
