Economist: Russia's Move to Lift Ban on Sudanese Exports Will Set Basis for Fruitful Bilateral Relations

Khartoum -- the Russian decision to resume Sudanese vegetables and fruits imports will be in aid of boosting relations between the two countries, Haitham Mohamed Fathi, Advisor to the Cabinet, has said.
He added such decision will reopen doors to Sudanese exports to international markets, especially agricultural products. Fathi added that Sudan has the potential for satisfying Russia's demands for agricultural products, calling for promoting better ties with Russia, a country he deemed military, economic and political forces to be reckoned with at international level.
The advisor to the cabinet described Russia's decision to lift ban on Sudanese vegetable and fruits exports as providing the opportunity for forging economic partnership between the two countries; in addition mutual cooperation agreement signed late last year.
He expected trade exchange will boost during next six years, hoping the return of Russian airlines to resume flights to Khartoum.
