MOSCOW, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Sudanese authorities will do a thorough investigation of this week’s assault on the Russian consul in Khartoum and will take all the steps necessary to assure security of the Russian embassy and its staff, Sudan’s ambassador in Moscow Omar Dahab said Wednesday.

He said it in the course of a meeting with Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov, who is President Vladimir Putin’s special envoy to the Middle East.

“The Sudanese ambassador expressed regret about the incident when an unknown person attacked Russian Consul in Sudan Andrei Taramayev and his wife and gave them several knife wounds,” the Russian Foreign Ministry reported.
