Sudan has extended thanks to Egypt over a medical convoy sent by Cairo to Khartoum.
The convoy of medications and medical supplies was sent earlier on Monday under the directives of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi to ease the Sudanese people's suffering and help them counter the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.
Sudanese government spokesman Faisal Mohamed Saleh thanked the Egyptian leadership and people for sending the medical aid, which includes thousands of personal protective equipment for the medical staff and sterilisers, among others.
During his reception of the convoy, Sudan's Transitional Sovereign Council member and Deputy Chairman of the Supreme Committee for Health Emergencies, Siddig Tawer, emphasised that such a step confirms the strength and eternity of relations between Sudan and Egypt.
The Egyptian convoy received at Khartoum International Airport included four Egyptian army planes loaded with medical aid to confront the coronavirus pandemic, SUNA reported.
The member of the Sovereign Council pointed out the noble stance of the Egyptian people, indicating the continuous support of the Egyptian people to Sudan in such situations.
Tawer affirmed the appreciation and thanks of the Sudanese leadership to Egypt.
On his part, the Egyptian Ambassador to Sudan, Hossam Issa, noted that relief aid provided by the Egyptian people included all supplies, solutions and medical devices, in addition to oxygen measuring devices, masks, sterilisers, and everything related to the coronavirus pandemic prevention and treatment.
