Shoukry meets Sudanese counterparts for talks on GERD, regional issues

Shoukry meets Sudanese counterparts for talks on GERD, regional issues: Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry met with his Sudanese counterpart Al Dridiri Al Dhaheri in Cairo yesterday to discuss political issues of mutual interest, according to a ministry statement. Shoukry briefed Al Dhaheri on the latest developments in Egypt’s negotiations with Ethiopia over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, and the two also looked into regional issues such as the peace process in South Sudan. Yesterday’s meeting was also meant to lay the groundwork for an upcoming meeting between Egyptian and Sudanese presidents Abdel Fattah El Sisi and Omar Al Bashir in October, according to the statement. The two ministers’ meeting wrapped up a two-day visit by Sudanese officials, which saw discussions on 20 joint projects with Egypt, the Foreign Ministry said.

Sudan to look into lifting agri ban next month: Sudan’s trade and industry ministers have requested to postpone discussions on lifting Khartoum’s blanket ban on imports of Egyptian agricultural products until the Egyptian-Sudanese Trade Committee meets in Sudan next month, an unnamed Trade and Industry Ministry source said, according to Al Mal.
