Political relations

Relations between Serbia and Sudan are traditionally good, but it is necessary to intensify political dialogue and cooperation in various areas of mutual interest. Sudan is among the countries that have not recognized the unilaterally declared independence of Kosovo, which is another gesture of friendship that characterizes mutual relations.

There has been no exchange of visits for a long time, and meetings of officials are most often held at international and regional gatherings.

 

Economic relations

Economic relations are mostly concentrated on trade cooperation, which is at a modest level, with a pronounced surplus on the part of Serbia. In 2019, exports amounted to 124 thousand euros, and imports to 273 thousand euros, and in the period January – November 2020, 346 thousand euros of exports and 110 thousand imports were realized.
