Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok left for Cairo Wednesday on his first visit to an Arab country since assuming his post.
Hamdok is leading a delegation of ministers and senior officials. He is to hold talks with Egyptian officials on ways of boosting bilateral relations and the latest developments in Sudan in light of challenges besetting the transitional government.
Last month, Egypt’s Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouly participated in a ceremony of a landmark power-sharing agreement between the main Sudanese opposition coalition and the military council.
Madbouly took part in the signing ceremony on behalf of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the current chair of the African Union.
The prime minister said Egypt is keen on supporting Sudan’s vision of the future of its nation, and said support would be provided in confidence in Sudan’s capabilities in resolving all conflicts and overcoming all challenges.
