Sudan's central bank received a total of $1 billion from Saudi Arabia in July and August, the Sudanese state minister of finance said on Wednesday.
"Sudan's central bank received an investment deposit from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia of one billion dollars. Last month we received $500 million, and we received the second part this month," Abdulrahman Dirar told reporters.
There was no immediate comment from Saudi Arabia.
Since the Saudi-led military operation in Yemen began, Riyadh has pledged fresh investments in Sudan's agricultural sector. Sudan has said the economic assistance is not linked to its support for the campaign.
