FM Shoukry visit to Khartoum postponed

The scheduled Egyptian-Sudanese joint political consultation meeting was postponed yesterday, Xinhua reports. Sources from both the Sudanese and Egyptian ministries say the delay was because of weather reasons. The news, however, follows Sudan issuing an entry visa requirement for Egyptian males aged 18-50. An Egyptian Foreign Affairs Ministry source called the timing of Sudan’s decision “odd,” according to Al Mal. The political consultation was expected to include talks on Sudan’s lifting of a ban on a number of Egyptian goods as well as the media’s impact on bilateral relations.
