Sudanese President President Omar Al-Bashir will take part in the closing ceremony of Egypt's World Youth Forum on Tuesday, Sudan's state news agency SUNA said.

During his visit to the country, Al-Bashir will hold talks with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi to discuss bilateral ties as well as the outcomes of a meeting of a joint high committee held between the two leaders in Khartoum last month, Suna added.

Egypt is hosting the global gathering in the Red Sea resort city of Sharm El-Sheikh as a platform to send "a message of peace, prosperity, harmony, and progress to the entire world," the event's website says.

Some 5,000 young people, journalists, public figures and officials from over 50 countries are taking part in this year's edition of the forum, which was first launched in 2017.
