Abstract. The article by Mohamed Eisa Ismail Dahab, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of the Sudan to Ukraine, is dedicated to the relations between the Sudan and Ukraine. A positive momentum in the bilateral relations of the two countries has been evidenced by the establishment of the Embassy of the Sudan in Ukraine. Since then, both parties have sought to deepen and strengthen cooperation in various fields of mutual interest.
The establishment of the Embassy of the Sudan in Kyiv at the ambassadorial level was a crescendo of friendly relations and a display of mutual will and sincere desire to strengthen relations further for the sake of the two nations. The Sudan also provides support to Ukraine on the international arena. Two states defend similar positions in the UN.
Ukraine and the Sudan intend to accelerate the speed of bilateral relations and contribute to joint political and economic arrangements, share draft agreements and memoranda of understanding to conclude various contracts on trade and investment, agriculture, education and science, technologies, and other spheres of collaboration for the prosperity and welfare of the two nations.
The author puts an emphasis on the importance of economic cooperation. The Sudan imports from Ukraine and spends many billions for various goods and raw materials. Ukraine is a partner in supplying wheat grain and flour, oil and seeds of oil plants, and various commodity goods.
The Ambassador of the Sudan expresses his gratitude for strong determination of Ukrainian government to contribute to further development and strengthening of relations between Ukraine and the Sudan in different domains. He hopes the states will do their best for permanent cooperation, coordination and friendship.
