CAIRO: Sudanese Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour arrived in Cairo Friday at the invitation of his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry in the framework of the constant joint political consultations between the two countries, Youm7 reported.
During the two-day visit, Ghandour will meet with Egyptian officials and discuss regional and international developments of mutual interest, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry stated.
The visit is the first of a Sudanese official to Egypt after the Sudanese government claimed late November that hundreds of its citizens in Egypt had been mistreated. Ghandour and Shoukry are also scheduled to discuss ways to avoid escalation and being dragged into attempts to disturb Egyptian-Sudanese relations, foreign ministry spokesperson Ahmed Abu Zeid was quoted by Youm7.
Ghandour will also hand over President Abdel Fatah al Sisi a message from Sudanese President Omer al-Bashir, Youm7 reported.
The two sides will also discuss latest developments regarding the Ethiopian Renaissance Dam negotiations.
Ghandour will participate in the extra ordinary meeting of Arab foreign ministers, scheduled for Sunday, to discuss tensions with Iran after attacks on Saudi embassy in Tehran.
