Egypt's Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry is heading on Monday for Sudan's capital Khartoum for talks with Sudanese officials as part of efforts to promote Egyptian-Sudanese relations after Sudan's success in moving ahead with its transitional phase and the formation of a new government, the Egyptian foreign ministry said on Sunday.

According to a statement issued by foreign ministry spokesman Ahmed Hafez, Shoukry is due to hold important meetings with a number of Sudanese officials, including head of the Sovereign Council Abdel-Fattah Al-Borhan, Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok, and Foreign Minister Asmaa Abdallah.

The visit is 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, the statement said.
