The Egyptian president, a former military general who served as the Director of Military Intelligence and former Minister of Defence, has been in power since the military coup of 2013; however, this will be his first visit to South Sudan despite many attempts to arrange his visit.

The two leaders are expected to discuss bilateral relations in the area of trade, health, Nile water, education and regional security.

“They will discuss bilateral issues and exchange views on regional stability as well as deepening South Sudan and Egypt diplomatic ties” the presidential spokesman said in his earlier press release.

President Kiir invited the general public to attend the arrival as early as from 8am but the Egyptian president arrived later at 11am.

“The Office of the President invites the general public to come to Juba International Airport beginning from 8:00 am for the reception ceremony of the historic visit of His Excellency Abdel Fattah Al- Sisi.” Read part of the statement.
