Saudi Arabia, UAE to dispatch ship carrying 50,000 ton of urea to Sudan


Saudi Gazette report

A ship carrying more than 50,000 ton of urea and supplies urgently needed by farmers in Sudan will be dispatched from Jubail Industrial Port to Port Sudan, in order to save the agricultural season in that country, Saudi Press Agency (SPA) quoted an official source as stating Sunday.

The source stressed that this is within the sphere of the continuous joint support provided by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to the brotherly people of Sudan.

The source affirmed that the support was ordered by the leaderships of the two countries, in continuation of the brotherly stances that support the people of Sudan in their current crisis, and to alleviate the burden borne by the Sudanese farmers, as agriculture is the main source of income for a large number of people in Sudan.

The source also said that this support is an extension of the $3 billion financial support provided by Saudi Arabia and the UAE, including an amount of $500 million deposited in the Central Bank of Sudan to support the economy and ease the pressure on the Sudanese pound.

The source added that the direct support for the Sudanese people being provided by the Kingdom and the UAE emanates from the deep relations and common destiny binding the people of the two countries and the people of Sudan. This is also based on the long history of brotherly strategic relations among the people of the three countries in all fields.
