Italian politician, Daniele Rovinetti, has expressed concern that the ongoing chaos in Sudan will have a negative impact on the Libyan economy. Rovinetti stated in a press statement on Tuesday that the commercial links passing through southern Libya, for example, are suffering from clear communication slowdowns.
The ongoing clashes in Sudan, which are between the Sudanese Armed Forces led by Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and the Rapid Support Forces led by Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, have resulted in at least 528 deaths and over 4,600 injuries. Italian politician Rovinetti expressed concern over the impact of the Sudanese crisis on the Libyan economy, given the interdependence between the two countries due to illegal immigration.
The Sudanese crisis has already had a significant impact on the country’s economy, with inflation soaring and shortages of basic goods reported. The situation has also led to a suspension of international aid, which is likely to further exacerbate the humanitarian crisis in the country.
The impact of the crisis in Sudan is not limited to the country itself, as neighboring countries such as Libya are also likely to be affected. The Libyan economy has already been struggling in recent years due to ongoing conflict and political instability, and the situation in Sudan is likely to further complicate matters.
Rovinetti’s comments highlight the need for regional cooperation and stability in order to ensure the economic well-being of countries in the region. It remains to be seen how the situation in Sudan will develop, and what impact it will have on neighboring countries such as Libya.
