The Republic of Sudan, located in the northeastern portion of Africa, is divided in half by the world's longest river - the Nile. The Arabic speaking nation of Sudan has a long history of political strife and unrest. The U. S. state department recommends that Americans refrain from travel to Sudan, because of the ongoing conflict in Darfur. Rich mineral resources are available in Sudan including asbestos, chromite, cobalt, copper, gold, granite, gypsum, iron, kaolin, lead, manganese, mica, natural gas, nickel, petroleum, silver, tin, uranium and zinc though soil erosion and desertification as well as deforestation are serious environmental concerns in this country. Petroleum is the main export of the country and will continue to play a prominent role in the growth of Sudanese economics.
