On Sunday, the Turkish ambassador to Khartoum, Irfan Naziroglu, pledged to transfer his country’s expertise to Sudan in various fields, to strengthen and develop the two countries’ relations at all levels.
This came when he met with the head of the Justice and Equality Movement, Gabriel Ibrahim, in the capital, Khartoum, according to the official Sudan News Agency.
The two sides discussed relations between Sudan and Turkey in the fields of development and economic cooperation.
Naziroglu stressed, “the role that Turkey can play in supporting peace, development, training and rehabilitation projects in the war-affected regions.”
He pledged to “transfer Turkey’s expertise to Sudan in various fields, in order to enhance and develop the two countries’ relations at all levels.”
For his part, Ibrahim praised, according to the same source, the advanced bilateral relations between Sudan and Turkey in all fields, and the two countries’ continuous efforts to serve common interests.
Relations between the two countries have witnessed a development during the past two decades, particularly since the “Justice and Development” party came to power in Turkey in 2002 when it set up an ambitious plan to enhance communication with African countries.
Relations between the two countries have also witnessed a wide movement since the visit of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Sudan in December 2017.
