Sudan expels Iran diplomats



KHARTOUM: The government has closed all Iranian cultural centers in Sudan and expelled the cultural attaché and other diplomats, fearing they had become a threat to society, the Foreign Ministry said on Friday.
The expulsions were linked to government concerns that Iranian officials were promoting their Shiitism in the country.
The Iranian Cultural Center and its branches had exceeded their mandates and “become a threat to intellectual and social security,” the ministry said in a statement.
Sudan, where many people follow the traditional Sufi tradition has also received delegations from senior Iranian politicians.
A government source told Reuters the diplomats had been given 72 hours to leave.
