Russia’s Special Representative for Sudan Mikhail Margelov believes that the USA should lift sanctions against Sudan.

The “divorce” between northern and southern Sudan was the main issue at Mr. Margelov’s recent meeting with Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir. Mr. Margelov says that Mr. al-Bashir is ready for contacts and compromises. The fact that the results of a referendum on whether the North must “divorce” with the South were recognized by al-Bashir’s government is evidence of that. 

Mr. Margelov also looks forward to see Russian companies at the Sudanese market.
