Sudan intends to reconsider the issue of creating a Russian naval base

At the end of April this year, Sudan decided to suspend an agreement with Russia on the establishment of a Russian naval base on the Red Sea coast. Now, according to the Chief of Staff of the Sudanese Armed Forces, Muhammad Usman al-Hussein, the agreement is being revised and amended.

Al-Hussein noted that the agreement has no legal force, since it was not approved by the legislative council of the country, since only this state body is authorized to make such decisions. However, as the chief of staff of the Sudanese Armed Forces assures, if Sudan finds the presence of a Russian naval base useful for itself, discussions on the creation of a military facility will continue.

According to Al-Hussein, earlier Khartoum cooperated mainly with Moscow and Beijing, since in 1993 the United States added Sudan to the list of countries supporting terrorist groups. However, last fall, Washington's position changed, since Sudan did not support terrorists for about half a year, and the country can now build relations with the United States and other Western powers.

The agreement on the construction of the base of the Russian navy was signed in December 2020. The document provided for the presence of Russian ships at a military facility in order to repair, rest the crew members and replenish the necessary supplies.

      Better to pay money for your base in Sudan than subsidize the lop-eared monkeys

    The multi-vector virus has reached Africa. Not otherwise, Janek's golden toilet bowl brought in the infection.
    The first offer from the Kremlin is usually the most profitable. Citizens do not understand this and decided to bargain?
    Well the flag in hand, let the biography of Saddam and Gaddafi study. Russia will survive; not only Sudan has a coast in Africa.

    Sudan intends to reconsider the issue of creating a Russian naval base

    - Maybe it's for the better ... - Before the USSR could pull a full-fledged naval base in Sudan ... - But today it is unlikely ... - And the Americans in this Sudan "run the show" ...
    - Russia today (or rather yesterday) needs to focus as quickly as possible on the creation of a naval base in Cam Ranh ... - There, too, the Vietnamese will break the price for all this ... - But at least there is a "game worth the candle" ... - and there is what to pay ... - And in Sudan everything is shaky and unreliable ... - And Vietnam will only welcome the "return" of Russia to Cam Ranh ... - this will be additional protection of Vietnam against China, and even for a lot of money ... - So that...
