Siddiq recently posted a number of tweets criticizing the bloody violence on peaceful protesters on 3 June, the deportation of SPLM-N goodwill delegation to Khartoum and the reported killing of 19 children in since June 3.

The ministry summoned him “to express Sudan’s concerns and reservations about Mr Irfan’s statements and his unbalanced stance towards the current developments and events in the country,” said the foreign ministry in a statement released by the official news agency SUNA on Wednesday.

The foreign ministry in its statement referred to “Irfan’s frequent tweets” saying they are contrary to established diplomatic norms and the principle of sovereign equality of states in international law.

The Sudanese officials said the British ambassador in his posts disregards the circumstances of the bloody raid on the peaceful protest site and the military council readiness to negotiate with the opposition.

The attack on the pro-democracy sit-in which resulted in the over 100 protesters, was condemned by the international community and the region.

    North Sudan should has just just expelt the creep and be done with it. For the countries like the US, the UK or France to be shown their right places, they have to be treated they way they treat other countries. By the way, these countries call themselves the masters ’oxygen of the world----the countries who rule the waves’ to be precise. These countries are relying on the ’WW2 victory over Japan and Germany’ but the the idiots are relying on false illusion>>>>

      If the Mr. Hitler Nazis let their balls carried them away and attacked Russia, Germany would have just crossed the English channel and do away with that devil infested lsland of England monarchies-----they allegedly Germans anyway, so l heard. And history would have been written differently. And by the way though, the ’Russian Red army’ was the one that defeated Adolf Hitler Nazis. But what what you always hear or read on the ’US and the UK’ controlled & propagandized mass media us----the west or allied nations defeated the Nazis or Nazism>>>>

        Nazism, fascism and plutocratism allegedly apportioned to Germany, Italy and Russia have just ’switched sides’ to ’the UK, the US, Israel and their gulf Arab client states’. Again diplomacy has never been a bad idea, but some European and their US attack one-sided or humanitarian aid, donations and human rights, coercion or intimidation’ kind of diplomacy is being currently challenged by like minded countries and the idiots are going to be shown right place with their sham divide and conquer anyway>>>>

          These so-called western countries have always ’set up’ countries against other countries or other people against other people’ and most of the times ’armed both sides of the conflicts’ to achieve their desired results. Zimbabwe neighbours were pressured behind the scenes by those so-called Western countries to get rid of Mr. Robbert Mugabe. However, Mr. Robert Mugabe was humiliated by the white criminals settlers, he forgave Mr. Ian Smith>>>>

            Mr. Robert Mugabe asked the white farmers in early 2000 for land reform because much of the land is in white settlers hands. The white settlers screamed that they cannot give their lands to black people. Mr. Robert Mugabe said okay, get the hell out here you don’t belong here but mere settlers. His country was *sanctioned* by the West and not borrow any money from the so-called ’IMF and the World bank’ cartels and accused Mr. Robert Mugabe government to have mismanaged his country economy---- can you fellows see?>>>

              Now that Mr. manangwa, different from Mr. Robert Mugabe has taken over. We are going to see if things are going to change that much in Zimbabwe. But for some keen Africans and others, criminals in the devil infested lsland of England and the US want the lands in Zimbabwe to be given back white people to be given loans by their ’IMF and World bank’ cartels and the Zimbabweans would be pushed to go and live in slum areas in Harare or Bullowayo. But l think, the Zimbabweans people are not going to fall for that nonsense again>>>>

                Venezuela in South America is a very rich country. But Mr. Hugo Chavez and his predecessor, Mr. Nicolas Miduro are considered ’socialists or communists’ and anti Western ideal and Capitalism. Venezuela has been crippled with severe sanctions and cannot borrow money the so-called ’IMF and the World bank’ cartels to jump start her economy unless Venezuela gave her resources keys to Wall Street and European banksters. Mr. Nicolas Miduro has even been recognised as ’ a legitimate president’ by the US and some European countries>>>>

                  I don’t know the formula those European and American countries used to arrive at recognising Mr. Nicolas Miduro oppenanent, but l think, it was not a good formulae. Venezuela neighbours are even also set up against Mr. Nicolas Miduro government to remove him from power by the ’corporatists, bankers, wall street merchant, fascists and plutocrats from the US and Western Europe so as they can take over Venezuela with her resources. But the Venezuela millitary seem not to want to hand over their country to people who are working in the interests of Venezuela and the Venezuela people>>>>

                    In Eastern Europe, Ukraine was destabilized when Mr. Barack and his then secretary states, Mrs. Hillary Clinton and state department officials like Ms. Victoria Nulland, meddled in Ukraine and removed an elected Ukrainian President and replaced him with their so-called pro West or Washington president. The people of Crimea saw what was coming and voted overwhelmingly to join the Russian Federation, people of Eastern Ukraine are being fought over, but they are eventually going to join Russia like Crimea people anyway>>>>

                      The people of Ukraine deserve better, but there are criminals in the Western Europe or the US who think, they own them and their country. Eastern Europeans are just Europeans like central or western Europeans. But as l always posted here. There on SUDAN TRIBUNE, there are creeps around the world who eckout their living on ’divide and conquer’ business, ’West vs East; poor vs rich; black vs white and so on, and these creeps are pretty much very dangerous to human beings on earth>>>

And was to be removed and replaced with a Sunni sect of lslam man. And this was precisely because the gulf Arab terrorist states, want to pass a natural gas pipeline line to Europe and to do this, they must remove an non sect of lslam from power in Syria and a so-called free Syrian army terrorists were created, the Russian Federation, Mr. Bashaar El Assad doesn’t want that nonsense to happen>>>>

With Yemen, the Houthis who controlled much of Yemen and are of ’shiite sect of lslam’ and are allegedly considered to be ’linked’ to Iran, Hezbollah of Lebanon and Iraq and were considered anti ’western European, Americans and Sunni lslam interests’.

            Dear Pakuai/ Kuch, reading your literary effusions is always a highlight when being on that website.95 % clearly focused on one topic only and drooling slurry on your favorite enemies. One might see this as despicable on one hand, but on the other hand, one has to congratulate for your perseverance when is comes to foul-mouthed eruptions.

              What I always wanted to ask - Are you a South Sudanese refugee in one of the bad Western countries, on food stamps or working in the low wage labour market? It would explain your frequent outbursts.....
