Prime Minister: Egypt will spare no effort in supporting Sudan



Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly on Saturday said that his country will spare no effort in supporting Sudan within the coming period, including political support in regional and international forums, especially the African Union, until Sudan regains its privileged position.

This came during a meeting Madbouly held with General Salah Abdel Khalek, the Chairman of Sudan’s Economic Committee of the Transitional Military Council, and General Mohamed Aly Ibrahim, the Secretary General of Sudan’s Presidency, at the Khartoum International Airport, in the presence of the Egyptian Ambassador in Sudan Hossam Essa.

Madbouly conveyed President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s greetings and congratulations for Sudan’s signing of the constitutional document. He expressed Egypt’s hope that this historic event will be a starting point in achieving stability, development and prosperity in Sudan, which will reflect on the welfare of the Sudanese citizen.

On his end Abdel Khalek expressed Sudan’s openness to Egypt’s high-level participation in the signing ceremony, praising fraternal relations and historical ties that have linked the people of Egypt and Sudan through the ages.
