KHARTOUM - Sudan on Wednesday expelled a Norwegian diplomat, the foreign ministry said, after Oslo told a Sudanese diplomat to leave the previous day over suspicions he was spying on refugees from the African country.

The diplomatic spat risks damaging the two countries' ties - Norway is one of the few Western countries to enjoy normal relations with Sudan, advising Khartoum on how to improve the performance of its oil industry.

Sudan's foreign ministry said it had summoned the Norwegian ambassador in Khartoum to inform him of the expulsion. It did not name the diplomat.

"The foreign ministry told the Norwegian ambassador it hoped the incident would not harm bilateral ties," the ministry said in a statement.
