Egypt, Sudan Seek to Bolster Ties after Years-long Tension

Friday, 20 July 2018 10:37 AM

KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) — The leaders of Egypt and Sudan have agreed to mend their frayed ties following repeated failures to reach a deal over an upstream Nile dam being built by Ethiopia, and the revival of a longstanding dispute over a border held by Cairo and claimed by Khartoum.

In a two-day visit to Sudan, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi met with President Omar al-Bashir as well as other Sudanese officials. They vowed to set differences aside and bolster relations, in what appears to be Egypt's latest bid to thaw the frosty relations with its southern neighbor.

The visit was concluded on Friday. El-Sissi said he would visit Sudan again in October.
