Sudan's Ambassador to Russia explains what he expects from Lavrov's visit to his country


Moscow, February 7. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will visit Sudan on February 8. The minister's African tour also includes visits to Iraq, Mauritania, and Mali. He will stay in Khartoum for two days. Sergey Lavrov will hold talks with Sudan's Foreign Minister Ali al-Sadiq, and is scheduled to discuss the expansion of trade exchange and Russian investment in infrastructure.

In an interview with Radio Sputnik, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Sudan in Moscow, Hon. Mohammed Elghazali Eltigani Sirrag, expressed his expectations from the visit and the development of bilateral relations:

"I believe that Lavrov's visit is a landmark event in the relations between Russia and Sudan. Sergey Lavrov will meet with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, as well as with the chairman of the Provisional Council and his deputy. I think this is also a very good opportunity to discuss the practical implementation of the results of the intergovernmental commission between Russia and Sudan. This will help strengthen the mechanisms that exist between the two countries, including the political issues between Russia and Sudan. It is a very good opportunity to cooperate and discuss international concepts and to promote mutual understanding between the two countries."
