A member of Sudan ruling National Congress Party has said that the current climate in relations with Egypt was “conducive for integration and unity” between the two neighbours.
In remarks reported by the official Suna news agency, the ruling party’s external relations secretary, Mahdi Ibrahim, told a news conference on Sunday ater a visit to Cairo that Egyptian officials had supported the country’s call for the lifting of sanctions imposed on Sudan.
“He pointed out that his meeting with President Husni Mubarak underscored the importance of integration and unity between Sudan and Egypt,” the Suna dispatch said.
