It is clear that the decision to establish a Russian military base in the Red Sea in Sudan will be taken by Vladimir Putin as supreme commander, but I personally see no reason why Russia can reject the proposal of the Sudanese side, if one follows. In my opinion, the military presence of our country on a permanent basis in this region will play an exceptionally stabilizing role.- said Klintsevich in an interview with RIA News.
Recall 23 November in Sochi, negotiations were held between the leaders of Russia and Sudan, during which Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, in particular, raised questions about military-technical cooperation and a military base.
We are also concerned about the situation in the Red Sea. We believe that US intervention in these issues is also a problem. And we would like to discuss this issue in terms of the use of bases in the Red Sea.- declared Omar al-Bashir.
Later, the Sudanese leader clarified that during the last talks, he discussed the possibility of creating a military base in the Red Sea, first with the Russian president and then with the defense minister.
