Cooperation   The two parliaments ratified many agreements

Turkey has signed 20 economic cooperation agreements with Sudan, a Sudanese official told the Anadolu Agency.

Speaking after the visit of the deputy undersecretary of the Turkish ministry of foreign affairs Ali Kemal Aydin to Sudan, the director of the European Department at the Sudanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs Youssef Alkordofani said the agreements covered the various fields of security, agriculture, infrastructure, telecommunication, transportation, education, health, cultural exchange, electricity and humanitarian support.

He pointed out that the agreements on security and agriculture have been ratified by the parliaments of the two countries, and that the remaining agreements are expected to receive approval in the near future.

"Turkey has already agreed to sell Sudan planes and ships to rehabilitate the transportation sector which has been damaged due to American sanctions," Alkordofani said.

"Turkey has also started to build a big Turkish university in Khartoum, and it is granting more than 100 scholarships for the Sudanese students" he added.

Measures will be taken to boost trade volume between the two countries, Aydin said.
