Egypt is delivering more than half a tonne of medicine to Sudan, according to statement by the Egyptian foreign ministry on Sunday.
Egyptian officials in Northern Sudan’s Wadi Halfa, close to Egypt’s Aswan, received an Egyptian medical convoy delivering drugs needed by Sudanese patients, the statement read.
The convoy will spend a week delivering the medicine to the Northern Sudanese city and other northern states.
The ministry said the medical convoy was the result of instructions from the political leadership of both countries to boost bilateral relations and cooperation in different fields.
Egyptian medical convoys to Sudan are not uncommon.
Throughout the past years, Egypt has often dispatched medical convoys to Sudan to treat Sudanese patients seeking treatment.
