Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi will land in Khartoum on Friday for a few hours, where he is scheduled to meet with Sudanese counterpart Omar Al-Bashir, reported state-owned news agency MENA.

According to an official from the Sudanese foreign ministry, Abdel-Mahmoud Abdel-Alim, the visit will include the discussion of bilateral ties. According to Abdel-Alim, El-Sisi is also checking on his counterpart's health, as Al-Bashir has recently undergone surgery.

Abdel-Alim, who according to MENA will be his country's envoy in Cairo, went on to describe El-Sisi's visit as "important" saying it would effectively contribute in developing Egyptian-Sudanese ties in various fields.

El-Sisi is flying to Khartoum from Equatorial Guinea's capital Malabo where he was attending the 23rd Ordinary African Union Summit, Egypt's first after the suspension of its membership in the AU was lifted last week.
