Turkey signs agriculture, oil exploration deals with Sudan

ANKARA: Turkey and Sudan have signed a US$100 million oil exploration deal and an agreement allocating thousands of square miles of Sudanese agricultural land for investment by Turkish companies, Turkey’s agriculture and forestry ministry said on Tuesday.

The two countries have strengthened ties and agreed in December, when Tayyip Erdogan made the first visit to Khartoum by a Turkish president, to gradually increase trade to US$10 billion a year.
