September 16, 2023 (KHARTOUM) – Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the Chairman of the Sudanese Sovereign Council, embarked on an official visit to Uganda on Saturday morning.
Departing from Port Sudan International Airport, al-Burhan received a farewell from Mohamed Al-Ghali Ali Youssif, the Secretary-General of the Sovereign Council, and several ministers.
During his sixth trip since last August, he would hold talks with President Yoweri Museveni about enhancing bilateral relations between the two countries, exploring avenues for their strengthening, and addressing matters of mutual interests, stated the Council.
The two leaders are expected to discuss the Sudanese position from the IGAD mediation group.
Sudan rejects the chairmanship of Kenyan President William Ruto of the IGAD Quartet Group casting doubts about his neutrality in the conflict with the Rapid Support Forces (RSF).
Al-Burhan is accompanied by Foreign Minister, Ali Al-Sadiq, and the Director of the General Intelligence Service Ahmed Ibrahim Mufaddal.
Last July, Museveni received a delegation from the Forces for Freedom and Change to discuss ways to end the five-months conflict in Sudan. - Sudan Tribune
