Is Sudan reconsidering the import ban on Egypt?

Is Sudan reconsidering its ban on Egyptian imports? Yes, according to Sky News Arabia, which cites unnamed sources as suggesting Sudan might backtrack on the ban it imposed on Egyptian imports last month. This comes one week after Sudanese Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour met with his Egyptian counterpart and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi for largely positive but inconclusive talks on issues including the ban, national security, and claims that Egypt had helped armed Sudanese rebels.

Tit for tat? Egyptian and Ethiopian diplomats have asked the UN’s Security Council to suspend the International Criminal Court’s arrest warrant for Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir, who is accused of committing war crimes and crimes against humanity, Africa News claims.
