Egypt steps up support to Sudan ahead of Nile dam third filling

Egypt sent aid and logistical and humanitarian support to Sudan as the two countries stress the need to continue consultations and mutual coordination on Ethiopia’s controversial Nile dam.

Egypt recently announced that it sent “aid packages and logistical and humanitarian support to Sudan” at the conclusion of a surprise visit by Sudanese leader Lt. Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Burhan to Cairo.

The visit of Burhan, the head of the Sudanese military and chairman of the Sudanese Sovereign Council, follows a series of trips he made to several Arab and African capitals over the past days. Several Sudanese envoys were also dispatched to African countries, most recently Sovereign Council member Ibrahim Jaber, who visited Rwanda on March 31.
