KHARTOUM

Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok received an official invitation to visit Qatar, local media reported.

According to Sudan News Agency, Qatari envoy to Sudan Abdel-Rahman bin Ali al-Kubaisy handed to Hamdok the invitation letter from Qatari premier Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz Al Thani.

Over the past few years, Sudan and Qatar have developed bilateral relations in the political, economic, cultural and humanitarian fields.

In July 2011, Qatar sponsored a peace agreement between the Sudanese government and a rebel group in the Sudanese war-torn region of Darfur.

Qatar also fulfilled its financial commitment of $177.4 million during a donors’ conference in 2013 held in Doha which raised $4.5 billions in pledges to rebuild Darfur.
