Turkey Reaffirms its Supportive Stand toward Sudan


The Minister of Federal Governance, Hamed Mumtaz said that  Turkey support the Sudan efforts for achieving stability in the country at this political phase.

During his 4 days visit to Turkey, Mumtaz met with Turkish Vice President Fuat Oktay, where he handed him a written massage from the Sudanese President Omar Al-bashir to his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the course of bilateral relations between the two countries.

According to SUNA, Mumtaz said in press statement following his return that the Turkish leaderships  confirmed Ankara’s support for Sudan in political, economic and diplomatic issues.

He added that the talks with Turkish officials also included the implementation of the agreements signed during the visit of President Erdogan to Sudan in December 2017.

During Erdogan’s visit to Sudan, Ankara and Khartoum signed 22 agreements in various sectors, which are being implemented.

Relations between the two countries have developed over the past two decades, especially since the Justice and Development Party (AKP) came to power in Ankara in 2002, setting up an ambitious plan to strengthen Turkish relations with African countries.
