Sudanese President Abdul Fattah al-Burhan and Sudanese Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdouk held talks with Saudi King Salman bin Abdul Aziz in Riyadh on Sunday on ways to develop cooperation between the two countries, the official Saudi Press Agency reported.
This is the first joint foreign visit to the President of the Sudanese Council of Sovereignty and Prime Minister since the formation of the structures of the Transitional Authority in Sudan last August.
The visit comes at the invitation of the King of Saudi Arabia, and is scheduled to leave Burhan and Hamdouk then to the UAE on Monday to meet Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed.
At the outset of the talks, King Salman expressed his wishes of stability and prosperity to the brotherly Republic of Sudan.
The Sudanese delegation includes the Foreign Minister, the Minister of Finance, the Minister of Industry and Trade, the Director of the General Intelligence Service and other officials.
Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates announced last August to support Sudan with 540 thousand tons of wheat, to meet the basic food needs for three months as a first stage.
This came as part of a package of aid to Khartoum announced by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates last April, totaling $ 3 billion. Sudan received a $ 500 million deposit in the Central Bank.
