Saudi Arabia and UAE to send financial support to Sudan

Politics A- A A+

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) said on Sunday they had agreed to send Sudan three billion U.S. dollars worth of aid, throwing a lifeline to the country's new military leaders after protests led to the ousting of president Omar al-Bashir.

The two Gulf Arab countries will deposit 500 million U.S. dollars with the Sudanese central bank and send the rest in the form of food, medicine and petroleum products, their state news agencies said in parallel statements.

The aid comes amid wrangling between the Transitional Military Council (TMC) and protesters and opposition groups who are demanding that civilians lead a two-year transitional period.
