Iran and Sudan’s foreign ministers meet in Azerbaijan, after 7 years of severed ties

According to the official IRNA news agency, Iran’s Foreign Minister, Hossein Amirabdollahian, met with the Sudanese Foreign Minister for the first time since the severance of diplomatic relations between the two countries seven years ago.
“In this meeting, talks were directed at resolving misunderstandings between the two countries and strengthening the political and economic relations between Tehran and Khartoum,” IRNA said of the meeting in Azerbaijan’s capital Baku.
Sudan cut diplomatic ties with Iran in 2016 following the storming of the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Tehran.

Saudi Arabia and Iran agreed to resume ties in March under a deal negotiated by China, raising expectations that Tehran and other Arab countries would fully reestablish diplomatic relations.

The meeting between Amirabdollahian and Sudan’s Ali al-Sadiq Ali took place on the sidelines of a ministerial meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement in Baku.
