The Daily News Egypt - - Front Page -

Pres­i­dent Ab­del Fat­tah Al-Sisi at­tended on Tues­day the clos­ing cer­e­mony of the se­cond edi­tion of the World Youth Fo­rum in South Si­nai’s Sharm El-Sheikh with Su­danese coun­ter­part Omar Al-Bashir.

Ac­cord­ing to Egyp­tian pres­i­dency spokesper­son Bas­sam Rady, Al-Sisi re­it­er­ated the im­por­tance of co­op­er­a­tion be­tween both coun­tries and the “strong and sin­cere de­sire to strengthen bi­lat­eral re­la­tions at var­i­ous lev­els in a way that bol­sters the his­toric ties be­tween the two broth­erly peo­ple.”

They also dis­cussed de­vel­op­ing elec­tric­ity, rail road con­nec­tions, and eco­nomic trade be­tween the two coun­tries.

The state­ment said that the dis­cus­sion ex­pressed the in­tent­ness of Egypt to co­or­di­nate stances with Su­dan, prais­ing the pos­i­tive re­sults of the meet­ing of the Egyp­tian-Su­danese Pres­i­den­tial Com­mit­tee re­cently held in Khar­toum.

Su­dan pre­vi­ously de­scribed AlSisi’s visit to Khar­toum as his­toric, say­ing that his coun­try is keen on up­grad­ing its ties with Egypt to­wards strate­gic re­la­tions in all fields after “wast­ing years on other is­sues.” Su­dan is cur­rently study­ing con­nect­ing rail­ways in both coun­tries, as well as re­mov­ing all ob­sta­cles in path of in­di­vid­u­als and goods.

The Egyp­tian-Su­danese re­la­tions wit­nessed a rap­proche­ment after months of trou­bled re­la­tions over sev­eral is­sues, in­clud­ing the the Halayeb and Sha­la­teen tri­an­gle, and Su­dan al­legedly host­ing mem­bers of the banned Mus­lim Brother­hood or­gan­i­sa­tion, along with the me­dia spat fol­low­ing Su­dan’s al­lowance of Tur­key to de­velop the Swaken Is­land in the Red Sea.
