DIALOGUE WITH US TO BE RESUMED SOON, SAYS SUDAN’S FOREIGN MINISTRY
Sudan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs says the second phase of dialogue with the United States Administration will begin soon.
Foreign Ministry Under-Secretary Abdul Ghani Naim said here Thursday that both sides had their concerns but the two will sit down and discuss all issues of concern and will agree on a process that will set the requirements from each side and that the two will follow the same methodology applied in the first phase of dialogue.
He said Sudan’s concern at this stage included lifting the name of the Sudan from the list of States accused by Washington of sponsoring international terrorism, trade and servicing the accumulated debts of the country which were supposed to have been written off immediately upon the secession of South Sudan to be an independent State, which took place in 2011.
On Sudanese-Egyptian relations, he said these were very important relations between the two sides but whatever problems there are between the two countries have to be resolved within the context of the various joint Sudanese-Egyptian committees.
He said the return of the Sudanese Ambassador to Egypt would be announced in time.
He said Sudan is keen to have good relations with all its neighbours. He referred to crossing points between Sudan and Egypt and between the Sudan and Chad which he said sent many of its exports through Sudan’s Red Sea port and that the same applied to South Sudan.
On relations with Eritrea he said the embassies in the two countries work normally.
