Ambassador Abdelmahmood Abdel Halim, Sudan's ambassador to Cairo, told Al Arabiya English that the Egyptian-Sudanese summit will be held on Thursday between Egypt’s Sisi and Sudan’s Omar al-Bashir to discuss bilateral relations and regional and international issues of common concern.

A preparatory meeting will be held on Tuesday, in which senior officials of the two countries are expected to agree on all details regarding the joint agreements and memorandums of understandings, and the projects to be implemented.

He added that a final pre-summit meeting will be held on Wednesday for the ministers of the two countries to agree on the files to be discussed at Thursday’s summit and ways to implement them and put them in the meeting of the Supreme Committee led by the two heads of state.
