Turkey approves law to cooperate with Sudan

Turkish President Abdullah Gül announced last Thursday the approval of a law that opens the way for a military pact with Sudan, which would include training and technological cooperation, according to a report in the Turkish paper Today’s Zaman.
This follows a visit to Turkey by Sudan’s Defense Minister Abdel-Rahim Mohamed Hussein in May 2011 to finalize the deal, which includes provisions on the transfer of military technology between the two countries, according to a report in Saturday’s Sudan Tribune.
