President Abdel Fattah El Sisi is set to leave Cairo on Saturday morning, heading to Khartoum in an official visit to Sudan for the first time since the formation of the sovereign council there, Presidential spokesman Bassam Rady said.
This visit comes to consolidate Egypt's efforts, under Sisi's leadership and to support Sudan and its people during the current crucial stage, according to the presidential spokesman.
Sisi's visit is also aimed at ensuring coordination as well as unifying visions and stances between both countries towards various issues of common concern, Rady said.
An Egyptian-Sudanese summit will be held during the visit, Rady added.
President Sisi is set to hold meetings with the Sudanese senior leaderships and officials to discuss various cooperation files and means of promoting bilateral relations, mainly at the military, security and economic levels.
Sisi's talks in Sudan are expected to touch on the latest developments in the regional and continental issues, particularly the Ethiopian dam file, security in the Red Sea and conditions on Sudan's borders. MENA
