Sudan is willing to allow Russian naval base on its shore

Khartoum, Mar 3 (Prensa Latina) A statement by General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, according to which Sudan could allow the construction of a Russian naval base at any point of its coastline, made headline on Thursday.

We would have no problem if Russia establishes a base, as long as it does not pose a threat to Sudan’s interests, said Hamdan Dagalo, better known as Hemedti, who is also an advisor to the Sudanese Government.

We have 730 kilometers of coastline, so we have no problem if any country bound to us by mutual interests and does not threaten our national security, whether that is Russia or any other, and wants to establish a military base, he reiterated.

Many foreign nations already have military bases in Africa, he stressed, and added that the decisions about this issue fall to the Ministry of Defense.

According to official sources, in 2017, then President Omar Al Bashir and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, agreed to set up a naval base in this North African nation, but so far, the agreement has not been implemented.
