Polish-Sudanese political consultations held in Warsaw

Poland's Deputy Foreign Minister Maciej Lang met in Warsaw on Thursday with the Minister of State at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Sudan, Omer G. Ismail, to review Polish-Sudanese bilateral relations, the Polish Foreign Ministry wrote in a press release.

"Sudan is among Poland's key partners in Africa," said Minister Lang, adding that "bilateral relations have been developing extremely dynamically in recent years. We appreciate the process of significant, peaceful change in Sudan that began in 2019."

During the meeting, the sides discussed the most important issues regarding political, economic and trade development, and cultural and scientific cooperation, the ministry wrote.

Minister Lang stated that Poland supported the international community's activities in favour of Sudan's political and economic stability. The interlocutors also raised issues related to the regional and global security agenda and bilateral cooperation in the Human Rights Council, of which both countries are new members.

"Poland is ready to share its experience of peaceful transformation. We appreciate Sudan's stabilising role in the region, we are vitally interested in ensuring peace and security in the Horn of Africa," Minister Lang was quoted as saying by ministry.

Minister Ismail expressed the conviction that the revolutionary transformations in Sudan will give a new impetus to the development of traditionally friendly Polish-Sudanese cooperation. He also showed appreciation for the long-term cooperation of both countries in the field of archaeology.
