Sudan’s military leader visits Egypt on his first trip abroad since his country plunged into war
CAIRO (AP) — Sudan’s top military officer has made a one-day visit to Egypt on his first trip abroad since his country plunged into large-scale conflict this year. The Egyptian presidency says President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi held talks Tuesday with Gen. Abdel-Fattah Burhan, the chairman of Sudan’s ruling Sovereign Council. It says the two leaders discussed efforts to end the conflict in Sudan in a way that preserves the sovereignty and integrity of the Sudanese state. Sudan plunged into chaos in mid-April when simmering tensions between the Burhan-led army and the a powerful paramilitary force commanded by Mohammed Hamdan Dagalo exploded into open fighting in the capital, Khartoum, and elsewhere.
