Egyptian, Sudanese FMs praise depth of bilateral relations   

CAIRO, (Xinhua) -- Egyptian and Sudanese foreign ministers on Wednesday praised their bilateral relations and discussed preparations for presidential committee meetings.

The comment came after Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry met in Cairo with his Sudanese counterpart Dardiry Mohamed Ahmed on Wednesday.

The two sides discussed bilateral relations and regional issues as well as preparations for presidential committee meetings, which are set to be held in October, according to a press conference.

Shoukry said that cooperation agreements are set to be signed during the presidential committee meetings.

Egyptian-Sudanese relations have been tense over the past few years on various issues, including dispute over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) which Ethiopia is building on their shared Nile River.

While both Ethiopia and Sudan are eyeing massive benefits from the GERD construction, Egypt believes it undermines its 55.5 billion cubic meters as annual share of the Nile River water.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi and his Sudanese counterpart Omar al-Bashir agreed earlier this year to end all dispute between the two countries and broaden mutual cooperation.
