Sudan President Omar al-Bashir will travel to Saudi Arabia on Friday but there is no confirmation he will meet with US President Donald Trump, who will also visit the country, Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour said on Wednesday.

“I can confirm that President Bashir will go the day after tomorrow to Saudi Arabia,” Ghandour told reporters in Geneva, declining to confirm whether Bashir would speak with Trump.

The US State Department last year released its annual report on global terrorist activity, listing Sudan as a state sponsor of terrorism.


Sudan is one of three listed state sponsors of terrorism, the others being Syria and Iran.

Ghandour also said the UN special envoy to Yemen had proposed a humanitarian ceasefire in Yemen during the month of Ramadan and he hoped it would take effect.
