Saudi Arabia hails US, Sudan’s decision to exchange envoys

Saudi Foreign Ministry

Riyadh,  Saudi Arabia welcomed the decision of the United States and Sudan to exchange envoys after over two decades of diplomatic void, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

The Saudi Foreign Ministry on Saturday said the appointment of US ambassador to Sudan considers the crucial stage Sudan is going through.

It also described the decision as a step ahead of the removal of Sudan from the US list of countries that sponsor terrorism and the reconsideration of all economic sanctions imposed on the country.

Saudi Arabia said in October that it was working on removing Sudan from the US list to ensure the stability of the African country.
