Presidents of Russia and Sudan Hail Defence Cooperation

Military-technical cooperation between Russia and Sudan is developing successfully, as is the interaction of the two nations in a number of other key areas. This was stated on Saturday by Russian President Vladimir Putin at a meeting in the Kremlin with visiting Sudanese President Omar Bashir.

Russia and Sudan have maintained a sound economic and politically strategic partnership. Due to solidarity with both the US and USSR, Sudan declared neutrality and instead preferred the membership in the Non-Aligned Movement throughout the Cold War. 

“We have good opportunities to develop relations in a number of areas, including in the military-technical sphere, which is developing,” the Russian leader said, according to TASS. He also noted a significant increase in trade turnover between the countries and a large volume of purchases of Russian wheat by Sudan.

In his turn, the President of Sudan also noted “positive changes in military-technical and military cooperation.” “A large number of Russian specialists work in our country,” Omar Bashir said, appreciating the role played by Russia in training Sudanese military cadres.

The Sudanese leader stressed that his country values the political dialogue with Russia and the position that Russia takes on international platforms on issues relating to Sudan. Speaking about the development of trade and economic ties, Omar Bashir said that Sudan would welcome the participation of Russian oil and gas companies in implementing projects on its territory.
