MOSCOW, April 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia wants deeper trade, economic and humanitarian contacts with Sudan, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told Sudanese counterpart Ali Karti on Monday.
“We have established a frank and trust-based political dialogue,” Lavrov said. “We have positive dynamics in trade, economic and humanitarian spheres, which we would like to increase. We are drawing on our nations’ mutual attraction, mutual interest in joint projects and shared outlook on developments in the world.”
Lavrov said it was particularly important today to exchange views on the situation in Africa, “where there is a growing need for settling various conflicts”.
He said Russia was interested in broader co-operation with Sudan within the United Nations. “Our countries agree on most key issues and resolutions considered in the UN, including resolutions devoted to the most current and complicated issues,” he added.
Sudanese foreign minister noted that relations between the two countries were currently “at an adequate high level” and both parties were “interested in developing this co-operation”.
