Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi received on Tuesday the head of Sudan's National Security and Intelligence Service Abu Bakr Demblab, a statement by the Egyptian presidential spokesperson said. 

The meeting was attended by Egypt's head of intelligence Abbas Kamel. 

Demblab delivered to El-Sisi a letter from the head of Sudan's Transitional Military Council, Abdel-Fattah Al-Burhan, who briefed the Egyptian president on the latest developments in Sudan.

Sudan has been witnessing a clash between the Sudanese Transitional Military Council (TMC) and protesters over the handover to civilian rule, only 10 days after the ousting of strongman ruler Omar Al-Bashir.

"The Sudanese head of national security expressed his hope that Egypt will continue to support the security and stability of Sudan to help overcome this stage, in light of the everlasting ties between the people of the Nile Valley and the pivotal role Egypt's plays in the African continent," the Egyptian presidency's statement said. 

El-Sisi conveyed to the Sudanese envoy his greetings to Al-Burhan, expressing his appreciation for the efforts exerted by the council in dealing with the current situation in the country.

The president affirmed "Egypt's full and unconditional readiness to provide all means of support for Sudan."
