Kuwait, Khartoum end one decade of boycott
Sudan-Kuwait, Politics, 7/27/1999
On Monday, both Kuwait and Khartoum ended one decade of boycott and restored their diplomatic relations to what they had been before the Gulf War.
Sudanese Foreign Minister Mustafa Othman Ismael, who arrived in Kuwait on Sunday night, hoisted his country's flag on the premises of his country's embassy in the Kuwaiti capital which was closed off in 1991. He laid the foundation stone for the new headquarters of the embassy.
The Kuwaiti news agency, KUNA, quoted the Sudanese minister as asserting Khartoum's determination to strengthen relations with Kuwait, relations which had been deteriorated since the Gulf War.
The Sudanese minister expressed his country's readiness to take part in settling the question of the Kuwaitis who are considered missing or prisoners during the Iraqi invasion.
He said there are important prospects for investment in Sudan, hoping that air and marine trips will be restored between the two countries as well as the Sudanese labour force to Kuwait.
