CAIRO – 18 July 2023: Special Representative of the President of Russia for the Middle East Mikhail Bogdanov welcomed the outcomes of the Sudan Neighboring States Summit that was held in Cairo on July 13.

Bogdanov commended the Egyptian efforts pertaining to the Sudanese crisis, expressing hope that Sudan would restore its peace and stability.


In a similar context, the meeting included talks on preparations for the Russia-Africa Summit taking place in St. Petersburg on July 27-28.
