Sudan, Turkey Eye Cooperation in Oil Sector

Sudan is ready to cooperate with Turkey for the development of its oil industry, the country’s Oil and Gas Minister Abdurrahman Osman Abdurrahman announced on Thursday.

During a meeting with the Turkish Ambassador to Sudan Irfan Neziroglu, Turkey's Energy and Natural Resources Minister Berat Albayrak presented a letter in support of energy collaboration between the two countries.

Abdurrahman hailed the good bilateral work in the economic sphere in recent years, which strengthened after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's visit to Sudan in 2017.

A high-level strategic cooperation agreement was signed between the two countries and Erdogan announced a bilateral trade volume target of $10 billion.

"Turkey desires to work with Sudan in all stages of the oil industry," Neziroglu said, noting that the Turkish ministry’s letter is a call to mobilize the agreement that was signed between the two countries.

He also reiterated Turkey's wish to cooperate further with Sudan in all economic fields, stressing Sudan’s strategic position in the African continent.

Late December 2017, Erdogan visited Khartoum and called for greater Turkish investment in Sudan.
