KHARTOUM - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will arrive in Sudan late on Sunday for talks expected to focus on boosting political and economic ties between the two allies, Sudanese officials said.

Iran, along with China, is one of the biggest supporters of Sudan's President Omar Hassan al-Bashir who faces indictment from the International Criminal Court (ICC) over alleged war crimes in the long-running Darfur conflict.

Shunned by the West, Sudan, which is facing an economic crisis after losing much of its oil wealth to newly-independent South Sudan, is keen to expand trade ties with Iran. Most Western firms avoid Sudan due to a tough US trade embargo.
