Saudi Arabia’s civil service minister leads delegation to Egypt

CAIRO: Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly welcomed Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Civil Service and Chairman of the Arab Organization for Administrative Development (ARADO) Sulaiman bin Abdullah Al-Hamdan to Cairo on Thursday.

Al-Hamdan was accompanied by a delegation of Arab civil service and administrative development ministers. The delegation thanked the Egyptian government for its support for the Cairo-based ARADO.

Madbouly stressed Egypt’s support for joint Arab projects, and his country’s willingness to share its experience of digital transformation and administrative reform with fellow Arab nations.

“ARADO’s annual meeting is of great value, bearing in mind the increasing importance of administrative reform in economic development,” he added.

Egypt’s Minister of Planning, Follow-up and Administrative Reform Hala Al-Saeed praised ARADO’s pivotal role in improving the administrative capabilities of Arab countries, noting that the delegation had reviewed the Egyptian government’s digital transformation plan.

Sudan’s transitional council vows to back Saudi Arabia against Iran threat

  • Himeidti said the military council would continue deploying Sudanese troops to Yemen as part of the Arab coalition fighting Iran-backed Houthis
  • It was Dagalo's first international trip since Sudan’s army generals took power after they backed protesters in ousting longtime-leader Omar Al-Bashir last month

KHARTOUM: A top Sudanese general has vowed to back Saudi Arabia against “all threats and attacks” from Iran, Sudan's ruling military council said Friday.
General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, the deputy chief of Sudan’s new Transitional Military Council, made the comments during a meeting with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Jeddah.
“Sudan is standing with the Kingdom against all threats and attacks from Iran and Houthi militias,” Dagalo, widely known as Himeidti, told the crown prince during their meeting, the council said in a statement.
Himeidti also said the military council would continue deploying Sudanese troops to Yemen as part of the Arab coalition fighting Iran-backed Houthis.
It was Dagalo's first international trip since Sudan’s army generals took power after they backed protesters in ousting longtime-leader Omar Al-Bashir last month.
The statement, the council's first major foreign policy announcement, amounted to a continuation of the deposed leader's policy.
