Bashir thanks Egypt for supporting Sudan’s stability

Bashir thanks Egypt: Sudanese President Al Bashir made a point of thanking Egypt, along with Ethiopia and Chad, for what was termed in Ahram Online “their support for his country’s security and stability.” In a speech given in South Darfur on Monday, Al Bashir said that the three countries had sent high-level delegations to back Sudan, which is in its fourth week of protests over an economic crisis that mark what the Wall Street Journal has called “the stiffest challenge to [Al-Bashir’s] three-decade rule.” Bashir’s expression of gratitude to Egypt is quite the departure from the tension that has marked the past several months between Cairo and Khartoum.

Salva Kiir in town to hold talks with El Sisi: Meanwhile, South Sudanese President Salva Kiir is in town to hold talks with President Abdel Fattah El Sisi, South Sudan’s ambassador to Egypt Joseph Majak said, according to Ahram. Kiir’s three-day visit, which started yesterday, will see discussions on the latest developments since he signed the South Sudan inter-state peace agreement, which ended a five-year civil war.
