Africa Outlook - - News -

Su­dan is in talks with Saudi Ara­bia for an oil aid agree­ment that would have the King­dom sup­ply its oil needs for five years on credit, Su­dan Oil Min­is­ter, Ab­dul­rah­man Oth­man said in a re­cent state­ment.

Oth­man said the deal would pro­vide about 1.8 mil­lion tonnes of oil a year to Su­dan, which has been hit in re­cent months by fuel short­ages that have forced peo­ple to queue at gas sta­tions for hours.

A source in the pres­i­dency’s of­fice in Su­dan said the fi­nal agree­ment is ex­pected to be signed within a few days.
