The meeting, which brought together several commanders of the Egyptian and Sudanese armies, took up means of boosting military cooperation in various domains including joint training and knowledge transfer.

It also tackled border security and combating terrorism.

Farid and Babikir chaired the final session of the 6th meeting of the Egyptian-Sudanese Joint Military Committee, during which several issues of mutual concern were discussed.
