(Suna) – The British Foreign Secretary for Africa, Vicky Ford, traveled to Khartoum for a high-level delegation to attend the first session of the Strategic Dialogue between the United Kingdom and Sudan.
UK Minister for Africa Vicky Four said: “I am delighted to be in Khartoum to lead the first session of the New England-Sudan Strategic Dialogue.
“The Sudanese people’s peaceful struggles attracted the attention of the world when the previous regime was overthrown. Since then, the interim government has made strong progress through political and economic reforms. Sudan is now at a unique juncture in its history. There are many more challenges.
The UK stands firm behind Sudan’s democratic transition. During his visit, the Minister will review some of the projects funded by the United Kingdom to provide support for children’s education and women’s health, and will host an event focusing on promoting investment in Sudan and confirming the Government of Sudan’s support for the Government of Sudan’s efforts to achieve democratic and economic change. The Minister meets with Minister Ford and representatives of civil society organizations to discuss the challenges and opportunities for women to participate effectively in change.
The visit of the British delegation follows the historic visit of British Foreign Secretary Dominic Robb earlier this year. Rob was the first British foreign secretary to visit Sudan in more than a decade.
