Sudan says Qatar to deposit $1 bln as part of aid package

CAIRO, April 2 (Reuters) - Qatar will deposit $1 billion at the Sudanese central bank as part of an aid package that also includes Qatari investment in large agricultural and energy projects, Sudanese Finance Minister Badr El-Din Mahmoud said on Wednesday.

He was speaking at the conclusion of an official visit to Sudan by Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani. Mahmoud declined to disclose the total value of aid that Qatar had agreed to offer Sudan.
