Sudan recognizes the Republic of Crimea as part of the Russian Federation, considering that the Crimean referendum conforms to the international law. “Izvestia” reports about it with reference to the Ambassador of Sudan in Russia Nadir Yusuf Babiker.
Earlier Sudan voted against the resolution of the UN General Assembly, which addressed the issue of territorial belonging of Crimea. "On September 22nd, we once again expressed our opinion at the UN General Assembly. Russia opposed the issue of the situation in Crimea being brought up for discussion at the session, and we supported it. Sudan considers that the Crimean referendum conforms to the international law," the diplomatic official said.
At the same time, he affirmatively answered the question of whether Sudan recognizes Crimea as part of Russia. "Yes, based on this position, we voted at the meeting of the Committee of the General Assembly. The vote was initiated by Ukraine, if I am not mistaken. Sudan supported Russia and spoke "against" - said Babiker.
The Ambassador noted that cooperation between Russia and Sudan is growing in the business sphere. "In principle, I believe that there will be no problems with the visit of the Sudanese delegation to the Yalta Forum (V Yalta International Economic Forum, which will be held on April 18-20th, 2019 — ed.). We will consider this offer," he added.
