Embattled Sudanese president returns home after visiting Egypt

NAIROBI, Kenya –– Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir on Sunday has returned to his country’s capital Khartoum after a one-day visit to Egypt.

Sudan’s Foreign Minister Al-Dirdiri Mohamed Ahmed informed reporters on Sunday, “The visit of the president to Egypt constituted a good opportunity for following up the implementation of the different projects agreed upon.”

The foreign minister added that consultations between President al-Bashir and his Egyptian counterpart Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi focused on mutual concerns and the current developments in the Arab and African regions.

Ahmed further disclosed that the two sides agreed to reactivate the cooperation among Sudan, Egypt and Ethiopia within the tripartite committee regarding the Nile Valley projects in general and the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam in particular.

Eyewitnesses account say since December 2018, various parts of Sudan, including the capital city Khartoum, have been seeing popular demonstrations over the failing economic circumstances and price hikes of basic commodities nationwide.

According to unconfirmed government data, at least 29 people have been killed during the protests so far.

President al-Bashir who has led Sudan for the past two decades is also wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague for crimes against humanity. 0000
