Egypt’s President Abdel Al-Fattah Al Sisi has shortly arrived in Khartoum in a two-day visit، during which he will hold talks with his Sudanese counterpart Omar Al-Bashir.

This is the first visit of Al-Sisi after winning a second presidential term in office.

The duo will discuss recent developments in the region and issues of mutual interest.
They will also review Arab، African، and regional issues.
Sudan’s Al-Bashir visited Egypt in March. He backed El-Sisi's bid for re-election days ahead of a presidential vote and pledged greater cooperation after a year of tense relations between the neighbouring countries.

The two leaders agreed to strengthen ties and work together to boost trade and military and energy cooperation.

Sudan recalled its ambassador to Egypt in January without explanation، but allowed him to return two months later.

The leaders of Egypt، Sudan and Ethiopia have been in talks to resolve differences over a disputed mega dam Addis Ababa is building on the Nile River which runs through the three countries and which Cairo fears will threaten its water supply.
