Egyptian Red Sea oil and gas blocks intrude on Sudanese territory -Khartoum

CAIRO, March 20 (Reuters) - Oil and gas exploration blocks offered by Egypt in the Red Sea’s “Halayeb Triangle” are considered a direct intrusion into Sudanese territory, Sudan’s state news agency SUNA said on Wednesday, citing a ministry official.

“It is considered an illegal operation that carries legal consequences which will be borne by the entities carrying out this operation,” said Saad al-Deen Hussein al-Bishri, minister of state at Khartoum’s oil ministry. (Reporting by Hesham Hajali Writing by Yousef Saba Editing by Mark Heinrich)
