President Isaias Afwerki received a warm welcome as he arrived for a three-day visit to Sudan. President Isaias will hold extensive discussion about bilateral relations and regional matters with the President of the Sovereign Council, Gen. Abdel Fatah al Burhan and the sovereign council.
The visit is taking place in the midst of regional tension between Sudan and Ethiopia. The dispute between Ethiopia and Egypt over the dam project that also involves Sudan has been intensifying.
Given Eritrea’s close relations with all the three governments, President Isaias is expected to play a major role in lowering the current tension.
After the fall of Omar al-Bashir, Eritrea and Sudan resumed diplomatic ties. There has been a regular exchange of high level visits between the two countries.
