Egypt and Sudan will open a shared border crossing within the next few days, according to a press release from Egypt’s trade and industry ministry.
Previously, an official declaration made at the beginning of the month set 12 August as the day for the border’s opening.
The ministry did not give any explanation for the delay.
“The coming period will witness a drastic change in Egypt-Sudan commercial and economic relations, especially after the opening of the border,” Mounir Fakhry Abdel-Nour, Egypt’s trade and industry minister, said on the sidelines of meetings of the Sudanese-Egyptian joint commercial and industrial committee that started in Khartoum on Tuesday.
