Foreign minister Sameh Shoukry stressed Egypt's support of Sudan during his first meeting with Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok as his country proceeds towards civilian rule, state-run MENA agency reported.

Shoukry stressed the strong relationship between Cairo and Khartoum, MENA said.

Shoukry earlier held a meeting with Sudan's first female foreign minister, Asma Mohamed Abdalla, during which he discussed boosting bilateral ties and issues of common interest.

He is scheduled to meet the head of the Sudanese sovereign council Abdel-Fattah Al-Borhan.

The Egyptian foreign minister travelled to Sudan in a visit “of special importance since it comes at the start of a new phase of cooperation between the two countries to face challenges and coordinate stances on regional and international issues of mutual concern following the changes in Sudan.”

Egypt has repeatedly urged stability in the neighbouring country since protests erupted in December 2018, leading to the ouster of long-standing president Omar Al-Bashir in April.
