Sudan’s Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour announced that the Sudanese ambassador to Egypt, Abdel-Mahmoud Abdel-Halim, will return to Cairo to resume his duties.
This comes a month after Sudan recalled the ambassador ‘for consultation’, which was said to be due to disputes over the ownership of the Halayeb Triangle border area, and over the use of the water from the River Nile that passes through both territories.
Talks between the foreign ministers of both countries were held in Cairo two weeks ago, followed by a meeting with both chiefs of intelligence who discussed bilateral relations and how they can cooperate on a number of regional issues.
Egyptian President Abdelfattah el-Sisi had met with Ethiopian President Omar al-Bashir prior at the African Summit in Addis Ababa and reaffirmed the strong historical Egyptian-Sudanese relations.
