Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE’s Armed Forces, on Monday, received Sudan’s President, Omar al-Bashir, at his Majlis in Al Bahr Palace.

Sheikh Mohamed, upon welcoming the Sudanese President and his accompanying delegation, expressed his happiness at the visit, which comes in the framework of enhancing bilateral relations and ensuring consultations on issues of mutual interest, in light of the keenness of President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, to support ties in the best interest of the two countries.

Sheikh Mohamed and Al-Bashir discussed the fraternal ties between the two sides, and their co-operation in various political, economic and development sectors, as well as, ways to bolster them to wider prospects.

They tackled the overall international and regional developments, and the challenges in the region, especially extremism, terrorism and regional interference, that destabilise security and stability and undermine development.

They also reviewed the most effective ways to combat terrorist organisations and drain their sources of funding and support
