President Abdel Fattah El Sisi congratulated on Wednesday the Sudanese people on the signing of a political deal that includes preparations for the transitional period in the country.
Sisi made the remarks during his meeting with Sudan’s chief of joint staff Hashim Abdel-Mutteleb Ahmed Babikir in the presence of Defense Minister Mohamed Zaki.
The president asserted his confidence in the ability of the Sudanese people and state institutions to restore stability, maintain security and preserve the country’s capabilities, presidential spokesman Bassam Rady said.
Sisi also underscored the importance of rallying regional and international efforts in dealing with current developments in Sudan to achieve peace and stability for the Sudanese people.
The president added that Egypt is keen on continuing joint cooperation with Sudan at different levels, especially in light of the close historical ties between the two countries’ governments and peoples.
He also asserted Cairo’s full support for Sudan’s security and stability, describing it as strategic for Egypt and an extension of its national security.
In the same regard, Sisi expressed Egypt’s readiness to provide all forms of support for Sudan to pass this stage in a way that meets the Sudanese people’s aspirations.
Babikir extended thanks and appreciation for the efforts exerted by President Sisi and Egypt to consolidate peace and stability in Sudan, either at the bilateral level or in light of Egypt’s chairmanship of the African Union.
The Sudanese commander reviewed the latest developments in Sudan and the steps taken by the TMC to interact with the current situation as well as to maintain security and stability in the country.
