Khartoum Warns Kenya Against Ban on Sudanese Oil Imports
Sudan has warned it may stop importing Kenyan tea and coffee in retaliation for a ban by Kenya on Sudanese oil imports.
Asked by reporters to comment on a reported measure by Kenyan authorities barring delivery of Sudanese oil shipments to Kenya, Sudanese Foreign Minister Mustafa Ismail on Sunday delivered a warning of retaliation to neighboring Kenya.
Sudan imports $150 million worth of Kenyan tea and coffee per year, making the balance of trade in favor of Kenya, noted Ismail, adding: "it is therefore natural that we export oil to Kenya."
"Any hindrance to the trade exchange will be of an adverse impact on both countries," Ismail warned -- AFP
