Sudan’s Chief of General Staff Mohammed Usman al-Hussein confirmed the revision of the agreement with Russia on the naval base.
According to him, Sudan is reconsidering the agreement on the Russian base because it could harm the country.
“This agreement was signed under the previous regime and was not ratified by the legislature… We are reviewing it to determine Sudan’s interests,” the Chief of General Staff said.
At the same time, he said, “Sudan is open to military cooperation with the United States.”
The Russian side is studying the issue of revising the agreement on the establishment of a naval base in the Red Sea by Sudan. Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said this.
“This agreement was signed under the previous regime and has not been ratified by the legislature,” he said.
Russia has seen Sudan’s statement, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
Peskov noted that Russia is in contact with Sudan through diplomatic channels and is looking into the issue.
