Sudan: Foreign Relations

Volume 490: debated on Friday 27 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what steps he proposes to take with his EU colleagues to impose sanctions on the government of Sudan. (265476)

While we will keep this continuously under review we are currently not proposing to take steps with our EU colleagues to impose additional sanctions on the government of Sudan.

The EU already maintains an arms embargo covering all of Sudan, which has been in place since 2004. The EU also imposes financial and travel restrictions against four individuals who have been designated by the UN Sanctions Committee on Sudan.
