Sudan, UN sign counter-terror pact

KHARTOUM, Sudan

Sudan and the UN on Thursday signed a pact on helping fight terrorist-related crime.

The memorandum of understanding is meant to implement the UN's Counter-Terrorist Travel Program, which provides intelligence support to countries against terror-linked crime, Sudan’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The memorandum was signed via video link by Sudan's UN Ambassador Omar Muhammad Ahmad Siddiq and Vladimir Ivanovich Voronkov, deputy head of the UN’s Counter-Terrorism Office.

Signing the $45 million memorandum signals the start of "a major integrated project in the field of travel, for the fight against terrorism and for civil aviation," the statement added.

The program helps countries prevent terror-related crime and find terrorists, foreign fighters, and criminals by analyzing countries’ travel data.
