Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi arrived on Monday in Khartoum to attend the closing session of the Sudan Dialogue Conference upon the invitation of President Omar Al-Bashir, state news agency MENA reported.

A number of presidents and diplomats will also attend the closing session of the gathering, which aims to draft a new Sudanese national constitution.

El-Sisi was received by Al-Bashir at the airport along with a number of Sudanese officials and the Egyptian ambassador to Khartoum.

Last week, Al-Bashir and El-Sisi held high committee meetings between the two countries in Cairo, and signed fifteen memoranda of understanding on the sidelines in various fields including commerce, education, tourism, economy, transportation, and agriculture.
