Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi said on Thursday Egyptian-Sudanese relations have been witnessing a tangible momentum over the past period culminated today with the convocation of the meetings of the second session of the joint higher committee.
In a joint press conference with Sudanese President Omar al Bashir in Khartoum, president Sisi expressed appreciation for the warm welcome and hospitality he received upon his arrival in Khartoum.
He expressed confidence that the coming period will see more constructive efforts as regards the implementation of the strategic partnership document signed between the two countries in 2016.
He said the past period witnessed the start of the implementation of the electric interconnection project between the two countries, which will take the existing cooperation between the two countries to a new stage based on the implementation of joint strategic projects.
Today's higher committee meetings will be crowned by the signing of 11 memos of understanding and an executive program to bolster cooperation in the various domains, Sisi said.
"Our get-together is very important as it comes at an important timing" given the current circumstances shrouding the region, Sisi said, hoping efforts to bring about peace and stability to the region would be crowned with success.
Brotherly relations binding Egypt and Sudan became more solid over the years and more capable of standing against any foreign interference or fabricated problems, president Sisi said.
He expressed Egypt's full support of Bashir's efforts to achieve security and stability, referring to the Sudan-brokered agreement signed among South Sudan rivals to settle conflicts.
Efforts to achieve security and stability in the Red Sea region will go on in coordination with Arab and African countries concerned especially in light of the positive developments taking place in the Horn of Africa region- developments that signal the start of an era where peace, development and property prevail.
