Sudan is facing a profound economic crisis alongside its political upheaval. That economic crisis is having a variety of consequences, including humanitarian. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are among those who have provided economic assistance. We are engaged with them – at ministerial and official level – as we are with other partners, on how the international community can best support economic reform and political progress in Sudan.
