Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tarek El-Molla reviewed Saturday with his South Sudanese counterpart Awou Daniel Chuang means of promoting mutual cooperation.

This came during a meeting between the two ministers, which was also attended by Chuang's accompanying delegation.

The meeting took up the possibility of transferring Egypt's petroleum expertise to South Sudan to serve mutual interests.

Egypt is completely ready to offer its expertise to the African country to help improve its petroleum sector, Molla stressed during the meeting.

It has been agreed to create a joint working team including experts from both countries to work for bolstering petroleum cooperation in several activities, including oil and gas exploration, refining, infrastructure works and training programs, he said.

Chuang, for his part, expressed appreciation for Egypt's keen efforts to push growth in South Sudan by tapping into the benefits of its petroleum resources.

He invited the Egyptian minister to partake in South Sudan Oil & Power conference 2019 slated for October 29-30 under the auspices of South Sudan's President Salva Kiir Mayardit.
