Sudan’s new PM arrives in Egypt to meet with El-Sisi

  • He will discuss bilateral relations after years of sporadic tensions during the rule of autocratic former President Omar Al-Bashir
  • Ties between the two countries were for years frayed by repeated failures to reach a deal over an upstream Nile dam

CAIRO: Sudan’s newly appointed prime minister has arrived in Egypt, in the first leg of his tour that will take him to France before heading to the UN General Assembly.
Abdalla Hamdok was received at the Cairo international airport on Wednesday by Egyptian Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouly.
Hamdok will also meet with President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi.
He will discuss bilateral relations after years of sporadic tensions during the rule of autocratic former President Omar Al-Bashir. The military ousted Al-Bashir in April amid months of protests against his three-decade rule.
Ties between the two countries were for years frayed by repeated failures to reach a deal over an upstream Nile dam being built by Ethiopia, and the revival of a longstanding dispute over a border territory held by Cairo and claimed by Khartoum.
