December 5, 2012 (WASHINGTON) – The United States Navy denied statements made by Sudan foreign minister Ali Karti yesterday saying that U.S. ships made a stop for a few hours in Port Sudan last month.

Karti used this argument to defend Sudan’s decision to allow Iranian ships to dock last October saying this is normal and routine in the context of international relations.

But a U.S. navy official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Sudan Tribune today that they "don’t have any record" of their ships visiting the country last month.

Khartoum denied that granting permission to Iranian ships was linked to a suspected Israeli air strike on a weapons factory in the Sudanese capital few days prior to the visit.

While the Jewish state refused to confirm or deny being behind the attack some Israeli analysts suggested that the factory is likely a hub used and overseen by Iran to deliver ammunition to other parties outside Sudan such as Gaza or Southern Lebanon.

The Sudanese foreign minister last month along with lawmakers yesterday have criticized relations with Iran saying it is becoming problematic for Khartoum and negatively affecting ties with other countries.

        Mohamed,
        LOL
        The problem with telling lies is that you have to remember the last lie you told. Poor Kurneyl must have forgotten that as over this year he has been in El Obeid, Darfur, Khartoum to name a few places.
        Interestingly it always seems to be when someone has denied something that the govt has said is true.
        Some forget that the archives can be searched on here and posts reread

    facts are facts. CIA @ FBI will not allow US ships just to pass near Sudan due to the lack of open relations.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to

    Countries that have good relations by working with other countries will be helped when there are issues. But the opposite happened in Sudan and this fact in the world.
