Iranian warships were set to return to Sudan later this week, AFP reported Monday, one month after a similar port call in the wake of Khartoum’s accusation that Israel bombed the Yarmouk military factory.

“Two Iranian warships would also visit Port Sudan harbor on November 30 and would stay at the harbor for three days within the military maritime cooperation,” AFP quoted Sawarmi Khaled Saad, Sudan’s army spokesman, as saying.

A pair of Iranian warships spent two days in Port Sudan last month in a visit Saad said evidenced the “strong political, security and diplomatic relations between the two states.”
