Sudan willing to supply oil to Uganda on credit

Nov 20, 2001 01:00 AM

The Sudanese government is willing to supply oil to Uganda on credit. "My government is ready to build an oil pipeline from Khartoum to northern Uganda to supply oil to Uganda," Sudanese envoy to Uganda Mohammed Sirajuddin was quoted as saying. "But the project can not take off when southern Sudan and northern Uganda are still insecure," he added.

Sirajuddin said if the Sudan supplies Uganda with oil, a litre of petrol would cost 600 Uganda shillings (about $ 0.4), while the current price of petrol here is 1,520 shillings (one dollar). He said he had made ground work with the Sudanese Ministry of Natural Resources to enable Uganda to access oil cheaply and that it would depend on the peace in the region.
