Speaking during a talk show on the Abu Dhabi TV Channel, Ibn Ouf said Sudan has now an infantry brigade fighting in Yemen, and expressed his country readiness to send more troops if asked to do so by the Saudi-led alliance.

He said his country’s forces had fought wars on foreign soil in the past and that the Sudanese troops fighting in Yemen now "are participating effectively and performing their duties efficiently.’’

"Sudan’s participation in the “Operation Decisive Storm” and Operation Restoring Hope in Yemen is out of deep conviction and in response to the call of the Arab nation,’’ he added.

The minister said the objective of the allied forces of reinstating the legitimate government will, God willing, be realized and after the return of stability to Yemen, Sudan will participate in the reconstruction of Yemen’’ as it had contributed to education in Yemen in the past.’’

Ibn Ouf stated that the forces of the Saudi led coalition were advancing on all fronts in Yemen "despite the tough terrain and despite the fact that the allied forces are forced to fight in populated areas, a matter that obliges them to be keen about the lives of civilians.’’

In reply to another question he said his forces are ready to carry out all the duties assigned to them within the newly declared Islamic alliance against terror.
