KHARTOUM, June 6 (Reuters) - Sudan said on Wednesday it had cut all defence ties with North Korea as part of its commitment to the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons.
The foreign ministry made the announcement in a statement. Khartoum has long been suspected of military ties with Pyongyang, which is locked in a tense standoff with Washington over its missile and nuclear weapons programs.
The United States lifted 20 years of sanctions on Sudan in October, but kept it on its list of state sponsors of terrorism. (Reporting by Khalid Abdelaziz; writing by John Davison in Cairo; editing by Andrew Roche)
