Ankara keen to enhance political, economic relations with Khartoum, Turkish ambassador tells top Sudanese diplomat

By Bahram Abdel Moneim

KHARTOUM, Sudan (AA) – Türkiye is confident that Sudan’s leadership will be able to overcome the current political crisis and reach a consensus that leads to the formation of a new government, the Turkish ambassador to Khartoum said on Thursday.

In a meeting, Irfan Neziroglu told Ali al-Sadiq, Sudan’s foreign minister-designate, that Ankara remains keen on enhancing political and economic relations with Khartoum, according to a statement by the Sudanese Foreign Ministry.

Al-Sadiq hailed the “depth of relations between the two countries” and emphasized the “need for concerted efforts to advance them in a manner that achieves common interests,” the statement added.

Sudan has been in turmoil since last October, when the military dismissed Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok’s transitional government and declared a state of emergency.

Prior to the military takeover, Sudan was governed by a sovereign council of military and civilian officials tasked with overseeing the transition period until elections in 2023.

Hamdok was reinstated a month later following an agreement, but protesters denounced the deal, insisting on the removal of any military influence over the transitional governing coalition.

He resigned this January, citing a political deadlock.

Bilateral relations between Türkiye and Sudan have grown since President Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited the country in December 2017, a trip that saw the two sides ink multiple agreements in various fields.
