March 11th 2020 (Nyamilepedia) – Egypt’s intelligence chief Major General Abbas Kamel passed on a message from President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi to Salva Kiir, the president of South Sudan, in a meeting on Tuesday.

El-Sisi congratulated Kiir on the peace agreement in South Sudan and expressed Egypt’s total support for the country and its quest for stability.

Kamel and Kiir discussed bilateral relations and ways to boost mutual cooperation.

Kiir expressed his appreciation for Egypt’s support, especially the medical aid Cairo sent to Juba during the flood season.

Kamel also met with South Sudan’s Vice President Riek Machar and congratulated him on the peace deal, assuring him of Egypt’s backing of permanent peace and stability in South Sudan.

The head of Egypt’s General Intelligence Service met with South Sudan’s presidential advisor for security affairs, Tut Gatluak, and director general for the country’s general intelligence service, Thomas Duoth, to discuss bilateral cooperation and counter-terrorism cooperation.

Kamel had visited Khartoum on Monday where he met the head of the Sovereign Council, Abdel-Fattah El-Burhan, and expressed Egypt’s support for Sudan’s counter-terrorism efforts.

The visit comes a day after a failed assassination attempt against Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok.
