Sudan has reopened its embassy in Azerbaijan, a message from Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.
According to the message a meeting with an employee of Sudan's embassy in Azerbaijan was held at the country's Foreign Ministry. During the meeting the parties discussed aspects of developing relations between the two countries.
As a member of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Sudan opened its embassy in Azerbaijan as early as 1993. However, Sudan had to suspend the activity of its diplomatic mission in Baku in 1999 due to financial difficulties.
A Sudanese presidential aide and vice-president of the ruling National Congress Party Nefai Ali Nefai, visited Azerbaijan in November 2012. During the visit it was mentioned that given Azerbaijan's regional leadership and the country's active role within the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, the Sudanese government adopted a decision to renew the activity of its embassy in Baku.
Azerbaijan for its part welcomes this decision. The Azerbaijani embassy in Egypt is also accredited in Sudan./Trend/
