Egypt President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi in Sudan to Discuss Water

  • Sudan, July 21, 2018: Egypt's president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi was in Sundan for a two-day visit to reinforce Cairo-Khartoum coalitions across all domains. The leader met Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir and had discussion on tensions about water security and the disputed border region of Halayeb.

    Relations have been strained between the two countries, particularly over Ethiopia's construction of a hydro-electric dam on the Nile River, which Egypt is worried about while Sudan is in full support.

    The two sides have committed to strengthen their relations in economic, trade and cultural fields.

    It was Sisi's first tour to Khartoum, since he got re-elected for a second term.
