KHARTOUM, Sept. 30 (Xinhua) -- The Sudanese government on Monday vowed to support whoever is willing to invest in the fields of oil and gas in the country.

"We welcome those who are willing to invest in Sudan in field of oil exploration and production," Adel Ali Ibrahim, Sudan's Energy and Mining Minister, said in a statement.

"The time for business and investment in Sudan has become more suitable than ever before," he noted.

The minister further vowed to prepare the atmosphere and remove the difficulties to attract investors under the new transformations in Sudan.

Ibrahim on Monday met in Khartoum a delegation of Dragon Oil Company of the United Arab Emirates and reviewed the company's desire to invest in Sudan in the fields of oil and gas.

Sudan is seeking to increase its current oil production of around 120,000 barrels a day after losing two thirds of its oil production following the separation of South Sudan in 2011.
