A high-level Egyptian delegation is visiting Sudan on Wednesday to offer support for the Sudanese people, state news agency MENA said, almost a week after Sudan's leader Omar Al-Bashir was ousted following months of street protests.

The officials will assess current developments in the country and "affirm Egypt's support for the choices and the free will of the Sudanese people," MENA said.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi on Tuesday called the head of Sudan’s transitional military council, Abdel Fattah A-Burhan, to offer his backing, a presidential spokesman said.

El-Sisi had affirmed “Egypt’s full support for the security and stability of Sudan and its support for the will and choices of the Sudanese people," the spokesman said in a statement.
