The Sudanese Minister of Minerals, Muhammad Bashir Abdullah Abu Nammu, revealed an agreement signed during the activities of the “Petersburg International Economic Forum” with a Russian gold exploration company.

The Sudanese minister stressed the importance of relations and cooperation between Russia and Sudan, and pointed out that Khartoum concluded, during the forum, an agreement with a Russian government company to explore gold in its territory.

Abu Nammu said that he held “lengthy and constructive talks with Russian officials at the forum about enhancing cooperation and implementing the protocols signed between the two countries within the framework of the joint governmental committee.”

He added that “a proposal has been presented to organize meetings in Sudan soon, to discuss the signed protocols and sign new agreements.”

In a related context, Russia and the Republic of Guinea signed a memorandum at the Petersburg Economic Forum, stipulating the construction of floating nuclear power plants.

The Russian state company Rosatom indicated, in a statement today, Friday, that “within the framework of the agreements reached, the two parties will consider the possibility of implementing the floating energy units project in the Republic of Guinea, and they will work to determine the terms and conditions for implementing the project,” according to the statement.

The floating power units project proposed by Rosatom is based on the modern reactor of the “Ritam-200” type, which is currently still under construction.

The floating power units are intended to supply electrical power to one of the world’s largest undeveloped copper fields.

Also, dozens of countries have shown interest in floating nuclear power plants produced by the Russian company Rosatom.

Between June 5 and 8, the Russian city of Petersburg will host the activities of the Petersburg International Economic Forum, with the participation of many countries, including 9 Arab countries.

The forum’s activities are important for exchanging opinions and experiences between policy makers, officials and representatives of the business sector from various countries of the world.
