Saudi Arabia, UAE pledge $3 billion to Sudan

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates announced financial support of three billion dollars (2.7 billion euros) for Sudan following the overthrow of longtime leader Omar al-Bashir.

The oil-rich Gulf states pledged to inject $500 million in the Sudanese central bank and $2.5 billion to help provide food, medicine and petroleum products, the official Saudi Press Agency said without specifying if the money is a gift or a loan.
