President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi asserted that Egypt-Sudan relations will not go backwards, noting that cooperation between the two countries could overcome several challenges whether political, economic or security ones.
Interviewed by the Sudanese newspaper "Al-Rai Al-Am" out on Sunday 23/11/2014, Sisi said relations binding the two countries and peoples are bigger than any differences and will constantly move ahead.
Sisi also said joint agreements between the two countries are not enough if compared with the historical relations and common interests they share.
Sisi said Khartoum and Cairo are in dire need of taking more positive steps in the march of joint agreements between the two countries in view of their deeply-rooted relations and for the sake of achieving common interests.
As regards the points of difference with other countries, the Egyptian president reiterated that Egypt is fully recognizing the needs of Ethiopia to introduce development plans, but in the meantime cooperation and understanding could settle any bones of contention.
As regards the role of media in both countries in the coming phase, Sisi asserted that he is against leveling insults to anybody or state and the media should be objective and reliable in circulating news.
At the end of his interview, Sisi addressed the Sudanese people and called on them to unite their ranks in the face of any difficulties.
