Sudan will continue to implement agreements on the establishment of a Russian military base in the country, as stated by the Sudanese military leader, Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces of the country Abdel Fattah al-Burhan.
“We have an agreement, part of which is the creation of a base. We are constantly discussing this topic, and we have some remarks that we need to eliminate. We are committed to international agreements and will continue to implement them to the end,” al-Burhan said.
As reported, earlier, an informed source in the Sudanese military department told RIA Novosti that Sudan considers it necessary to amend the agreement on the establishment of a Russian naval base in Port Sudan on the Red Sea coast in order to receive economic assistance from Russia, subject to a lease for five years with the possibility of signing an agreement for 25 years. The Embassy of Sudan assured that the country does not request any payments from Russia, and reports about this are “groundless”.
It is reminded that the agreement to create a Russian Navy point in Sudan was announced in November 2020. According to the document, the maximum number of personnel of the Naval station, whose work is carried out by the forces and means of the Russian side, will not exceed 300 people, so no more than four Russian ships will be able to be there at the same time.
