Key aspects diplomatic relations
For years, Switzerland has been delivering humanitarian aid and promoting peace in Sudan, especially in Darfur and other regions of unrest. Among other historic initiatives, Switzerland was active in the ceasefire process (Nuba Mountains Agreement) which was negotiated and signed in Switzerland on 19 January 2002. This was the starting point for further negotiations leading to the conclusion of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in 2005 between the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) and the government of the Republic of Sudan.
Sudan is part of the Greater Horn of Africa region, one of Switzerland's five geographical priorities in the Sub-Saharan Africa Strategy 2021–24.
