Sudan's longtime ties to Iran — and the two nations' roles in arming Islamic militants — have come under scrutiny in the wake of an explosion at a Khartoum weapons factory, blamed on an Israeli airstrike, and the dockings of two Iranian warships at a Sudanese port.
Satellite images of the aftermath of an explosion at a Sudanese weapons factory this past week suggest the site was hit in an airstrike, a U.S. monitoring group said Saturday.
Sudan and South Sudan are still supporting rebels in each other's country as they prepare for a fresh round of talks this week over disputes that brought the two neighbors to the brink of war earlier this year.
"Iran has provided support to Sudan's weapons manufacturing sector, including training and technological support," Mr. Leff said.
"Our sense has always been that they would prefer to have training, cooperation and assistance from more reputable partners, but they don't have that luxury," he said.
