Libya's Foreign Ministry has formed a team to follow up on the Libyan community in Sudan after the Sudanese army clashed with a notorious paramilitary force in the capital on Saturday.

The ministry called on the Libyans residing in Sudan to take utmost precautions and follow the instructions of the relevant organizations for their safety.

The statement published emergency phone numbers set by Libya's embassy in Khartoum and urged Libyans to reach out for help if required.

In a separate statement, the ministry called on the Sudanese conflict parties to take all measures to ensure the safety of civilians, resort to dialogue, and give priority to their nation's interests.

The Foreign Ministry said it is following up on the "unfortunate" developments in the neighbouring country after the outbreak of the armed clashes.

Violence erupted in Khartoum and other areas, including Marawi in northern Sudan, between the army forces led by its head Abdul Fattah Al-Burhan and his deputy/ commander of the Rapid Support Forces, Mohamed Hamdan Hamidati, on Saturday morning.
