The Russian minister said he hoped results of the next meeting of the Russian-Sudanese intergovernmental commission that will be held in Moscow next week would be as effective as in the past year.
After the previous meeting last year, the trade turnover between the two countries increased fourfold. “We hope results of the next meeting will be as effective as these,” Lavrov said.
The Sudanese minister said they had discussed a wide range of issues of bilateral relations, including cooperation in the oil and banking sectors. “We are glad to welcome Russian companies in Sudan,” he said.
He also said he expected the dialogue to continue during the next intergovernmental commission meeting in Moscow next week.
