Egypt, Somalia discuss Sudan, Red Sea security
Egyptian FM Sameh Shoukry meets Somali counterpart Ahmed Awad in Cairo

CAIRO (AA) – The Egyptian and Somali foreign ministers met in Cairo on Thursday to discuss recent political developments in Sudan and Red Sea security.

According to an Egyptian Foreign Ministry statement, Egypt’s top diplomat, Sameh Shoukry, met with Somali counterpart Ahmed Awad, who is currently visiting the Egyptian capital.

“Both sides exchanged their points of view, especially on recent developments in Sudan and the Horn of Africa and on Red Sea security,” the statement read.

The meeting also reportedly tackled the fight against terrorism and peacekeeping operations in Somalia.

Last week, Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir was ousted by the army after months of popular protests against his 30-year rule.

A military council will now run the country’s affairs for a two-year “transitional period” during which presidential elections will eventually be held.
