Saudi Arabia welcomes US, Sudan's decision to exchange envoys

Saudi Arabia welcomed on Saturday the decision of the United States and Sudan to exchange envoys after over two decades of diplomatic void, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

The Saudi Foreign Ministry said the appointment of U.S. ambassador to Sudan considers the crucial stage Sudan is going through.

It also described the decision as a step ahead of the removal of Sudan from the U.S. list of countries that sponsor terrorism and the reconsideration of all economic sanctions imposed on the country.

Saudi Arabia said in Ocotober that it was working on removing Sudan from the U.S. list to ensure the stability of the African country.
