President Sisi also affirmed his country’s keenness to accelerate the implementation of joint development projects between both countries, particularly in fields of electricity and railway.

Sudanese interim military chief updated President Sisi on the latest development of the Sudanese political situation, parsing Egypt’s cooperative efforts for Sudan’s unity and stability, Radi continued.

Four days ago, President Sisi received a letter of thanks and appreciation from Burhan in response to the congratulatory message sent to him on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan.

Shortly after Bashir’s regime was removed, Egypt expressed its “full confidence” in the ability of the Sudanese people and their “loyal” national army to overcome the challenges of such “decisive” stage and meet the Sudanese people’s aspiration to achieve stability, progress and prosperity.
