Sudan slams Greece for seizing explosives ship

Sudanese Foreign Minister Mustafa Ismail slammed Greece for seizing a ship carrying explosives to Sudan which it said were for civilian purposes. Ismail said the ship was carrying ammonium nitrates, a kind of dynamite which had been ordered by a registered Sudanese company from a Tunisian one, and that all documents concerning the shipment had been approved by his ministry. Ismail said he had ordered ministry officials to summon the Greek ambassador in Khartoum, show him all the documents and communicate to him Sudan’s dipleasure for Greece’s haste in ordering the ship seized before verifying the facts. His remarks were carried both by state-run Omdurman radio and SUNA news agency.
