In November, Sudan was unable to access $650 million in international funding, the finance minister of the dissolved government said.
The funding was seen as crucial in helping Sudan emerge from decades of isolation and supporting a transition towards democracy that began with the 2019 overthrow of Omar al-Bashir.
The financing included $500 million in budget support from the World Bank and $150 million in special drawing rights from the International Monetary Fund, said Jibril Ibrahim, who was appointed to a civilian transitional government in February.
The pause of the assistance after the October 25 coup puts in doubt basic import payments and the fate of economic reforms.
The coup caused the United States to put on hold disbursements of $700 million in economic assistance and the World Bank’s promised $2 billion in grants.
