Egypt’s Foreign Minister Visits Southern Sudan

Egypt on Sunday announced a short African tour by Foreign Minister Sameh Choukri on Monday, including the establishment of a mechanism for political consultation with the state of southern Sudan and interviews with the steering committee of the national dialogue there. The tour also includes Kenya.

Egypt’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement that Shukri’s African tour aims to “enhance bilateral cooperation with the two brotherly countries and consult on a number of regional issues of common concern.”

Shukri will meet with President Salva Kiir Mayardit in Juba, then sign a memorandum to establish a mechanism for political consultation between the two countries and meet with the steering committee of the national dialogue.

The visit includes the delivery of Shukri a shipment of logistical aid and the opening of a medical center in Juba.

According to the Foreign Ministry statement, Shukri will also head to the Kenyan capital of Nairobi, where he will meet Kenyan President Ohoro Kenyatta, who will deliver an oral message from his Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, including ways to enhance cooperation and improve relations between the two countries.

This follows Shukri’s consultations with the Kenyan Foreign and Defense Ministers, without further details.
