On Sunday, Hassan received the Italian ambassador to Sudan Fabrizio Lobasso, and discussed with him the development projects that Italy is implementing in Eastern Sudan.

The Sudanese Minister "expressed his appreciation for the excellent Italian expertise (in the development) field, not just in the bilateral context but also through its leadership in implementing important European programmes," said a statement extended to Sudan Tribune by the Italian embassy in Khartoum.

He further said that the Italian projects are instrumental for the social stability as they aim to improve difficult conditions of vulnerable people and contribute to establish the necessary condition for political stability.

Earlier this month, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) announced that Italian government granted 600,000 euro for an Integrated Food Security and Livelihoods Project (IFSLP) that will target 7.500 households in Kessala and Red Sea states.

Ambassador Lobasso said that Italian support to the Sudanese people aims to achieve productive projects in the sectors of health and rural development. he added that a special focus is given to the eastern Sudan region .

Sudanese officials criticize the humanitarian assistance provided by different western nations, saying this money can be used to fund sustainable food and development projects.

During its six-month rotational presidency of the European Union in 2014, the Italian government worked to launch the EU-Horn of Africa Migration Route Initiative aka Khartoum Process, which aims to tackle trafficking of migrants between the Horn of Africa and Europe.
