The British ambassador to Sudan, Michael Aron, has said his country’s vote to leave the European Union (Brexit) will not affect the developed relations between the UK and Sudan.

The official Sudan News Agency (SUNA) reports that Ambassador Aaron met with Undersecretary Abdul Ghani Al Naeem Awad Al Karim at the Ministry of Foreign Relations to discuss bilateral trade and economic cooperation, as well as the hurdles that slow the cooperation and how to remedy them.

The meeting also reviewed the positive developments in relations between the two countries with the launch of the strategic dialogue a few months ago, the outcome of that meeting, the positive understanding reached, and agreements to strengthen coordination between the two countries.

It also touched on the successful visit of the UK Special Representative for Sudan, Matthew Cannel, in May.

Undersecretary Al Karim stressed the need to continue coordination at this pace between the two countries, as well as the need to raise the level of coordination between the two countries at international forums.

The undersecretary also briefed the ambassador on the developments at the level of the National dialogue and the peace process in the Sudan.

The United Kingdom is part of the ‘Sudan Troika’, along with Norway and the USA.
