Sudan’s ambassador to Cairo to return “very soon”

Sudan and Egypt back to being brothers again…until next time: Sudan’s ambassador to Egypt will return to Cairo “very soon,” Sudan’s Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour said last Thursday, The Associated Press notes. Sudan had recalled its ambassador to Egypt for consultation last month amid souring ties between the two countries. The statement follows a meeting between Ghandour, Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry, and intelligence officials from both sides, who all agreed on setting a framework for improving ties. On water sharing, both sides committed to the previous resolutions of the tripartite committee on the Grand Ethiopian Dam. They also agreed to uphold water-sharing protocols signed in a 1959 treaty, which Sudan had accused Egypt of violating. Both sides committed to amicably resolving outstanding disputes (hint, hint, trade boycott) and also committed to keeping the media in check, according to a joint statement. Sudan Tribune also has coverage.
