Sudan says Brexit not to affect bilateral ties

Sudanese government has reiterated that its ties with Britain would not be affected by the exit from the European Union (EU), SUNA report said.

“The result of the vote on Britain’s exit is a matter that concerns the British people. It is a democratic process accepted by those who work in politics and who accept democracy as a method of rule,” Ali Al-Saddiq, Sudan Foreign Ministry Spokesman, was quoted as saying.

He stressed the bilateral ties are historical and deeply-rooted despite the stalemate in the past two decades, expecting Britain’s exit not to affect its ties with Sudan.

Al-Saddiq expressed Sudan’s hope to improve its relations with Britain, saying “we are confident that if political will is made available on the British side, Sudan is keen to develop and improve its ties with Britain.”
