Sudan and EU agree to continue strategic cooperation

Sudanese government and the European Union (EU) on Monday have agreed to continue strategic cooperation and coordination at all levels during the coming period, said Sudan’s foreign ministry. In a press release extended to Sudan Tribune, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Gharib Allah Khidir said Sudan’s foreign ministry under-secretary Abdel-Ghani al-Nai’m on Monday has met with the EU envoy to Khartoum Jean-Michel Dumond. Khidir pointed that the meeting discussed political relations between Sudan and the EU besides issues of combating illegal migration and human trafficking and development. “The two sides agreed to cooperate strategically and to continue full coordination at all levels during the coming period,” read the press release. According to the foreign ministry, Dumond praised Sudan’s pivotal role in addressing regional issues and underlined EU’s support for the peace process in Sudan and keenness to promote cooperation between the two sides. Also, the foreign ministry said Dumond announced that arrangements are underway to carry out a number of visits by senior EU officials to Sudan, pointing that a senior EU parliamentary delegation will visit Khartoum from 19 to 24 April. It added that the EU envoy further hailed the work of the joint higher committee for cooperation, saying its work would lead to establishing strategic relations between Sudan and the EU. For his part, al-Nai’m stressed Sudan’s readiness to cooperate with the EU to achieve the desired goals, pointing to the importance of the good preparation to activate the role of the higher committee for political consultation. He called for enhancing efforts to cancel Sudan’s external debt and promote investment, welcoming the EU’s initiative to open an European chamber of commerce in Khartoum soon.
