Shoukry meets with Afrexim chief to discuss CFTZ ahead of Africa tour
Shoukry kicks off Africa engagement tour: Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry met with African Export-Import bank (Afrexim) chief Benedict Okey Oramah ahead of meetings on launching the Continental Free Trade Zone (CFTZ) in Kigali later this month, according to a ministry statement. Shoukry will then travel on Monday to South Sudan, and Kenya, where he will discuss cooperation with President Uhuru Kenyatta, according to another ministry statement.
This comes as acting head of General Intelligence Abbas Kamel met with his Sudanese counterpart Salah Ghosh and Sudan’s Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour in Khartoum on Saturday to discuss coordination for resolving “pending issues”, Sudan News Agency (SUNA) reports.
But that’s not stopping Sudan from flirting with pariahs, as the country and Qatar have agreed to establish a joint committee for political consultations, the Sudanese Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
