Ethiopia, Sudan Discuss Economic Ties, Security

ADDIS ABABA – Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and Lieutenant-General Abdel Fattah Abdelrahman Burhan, the head of Sudan’s sovereign council, have discussed today on ways to enhance the economic relationship of the two nations.

Leaders of the two nations are in constant contact recently to discuss various topics including on ways to resolve their border dispute, permanently.

PM Abiy and his Sudanese counterpart Abdalla Hamdok agreed to form a technical body to complete the demarcation of the border during their phone talks last Tuesday.

Today, Abiy said he had a “good phone discussion” with Chairman of the Sovereign Council of Sudan, Lt. Gen. Abdel.

In Twitter, the prime minister said during the discussion “we exchanged ideas on strengthening economic ties between our two countries and enduring regional #peaceandsecurity”.

Relations between the two East African countries have improved since the overthrow of Omar al-Bashir.
