Sudan’s army chief Al-Burhan heads to Egypt to meet with Sisi

Sudan’s Sovereignty Council President, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, left his country on Tuesday for Egypt to meet with President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi.

This marks his first foreign visit since the clashes erupted between the army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in mid-April.

According to a statement issued by the Sovereignty Council, Al-Burhan “headed to the Arab Republic of Egypt this morning to hold talks with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, discussing the developments in Sudan.”

The statement also mentioned that Al-Burhan will discuss “the bilateral relations between the two countries and ways to enhance and develop their support for the mutual interests of both nations.”

This visit is Al-Burhan’s first foreign trip since the clashes erupted in mid-April between his army and the RSF led by Commander Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo. The clashes have persisted despite multiple ceasefires, resulting in over 3,000 deaths, mostly civilians, and displacing more than 4 million people internally and externally.
