Rabat – King Mohammed VI is expected to pay an official visit to Sudan in October, according to Sudanese media.
Sudan Tribune reported on May 26 that Sudan’s Minister of Cabinet Affairs Ahmed Saad Omer announced that the King will pay his “first ever visit” to Khartoum in October, following Omer’s recent three-day visit to the kingdom, where he met Head of Government Saad Eddine El Othmani.
Sudan signed an agreement with Morocco to benefit from Morocco’s success in attracting foreign investment. The Sudanese minister and Moroccan officials also discussed measures to reinforce bilateral ties between the two countries.
Sudan is among the countries that recognize Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara.
King Mohammed VI traveled to South Sudan in February 2017 after Morocco’s return to the African Union. The King also chaired the signing ceremony of nine bilateral agreements between the two countries.
The agreement fell within the framework of the King’s commitment to consolidate South-South cooperation. The agreement included the building of South Sudan’s new capital city of Ramciel, an investment agreement, and an agreement to avoid double taxation and to fight tax evasion.
