August 17, 2015 (KHARTOUM) – The United Republic of Tanzania has decided to reopen its embassy in Khartoum, two decades after it was shut down.
The Tanzanian foreign ministry undersecretary, Liberata Mulamula, on Monday has conveyed her government’s decision to her Sudanese counterpart, Abdel-Ghani al-Nai’m.
The two officials discussed ways for promoting the bilateral cooperation in the trade, economic and cultural domains besides the exchange in the training of diplomats and coordination in the regional and international forums.
They stressed the need for forming joint ministerial committees between the two countries as well as forming another committee for political consultation between the two ministries to lay the foundations for the development of bilateral relations in all fields.
It is worth mentioning that Tanzania has shut down its embassy in Khartoum more than two decades ago for economic reasons.
The Sudanese diplomat, for his part, briefed his Tanzanian counterpart on the security and political developments in the country besides the ongoing consultations among the Sudanese government, United Nations and the African Union on the exit strategy for the hybrid peacekeeping mission in Darfur (UNAMID).
