The state minister in the foreign affairs ministry Salah Wansi said that Bashir discussed recent developments in Eritrea following a move by dissident soldiers last month who briefly seized the information ministry in Asmara.

The two leaders also tackled bilateral ties on the political, economic and security fronts, Wansi added.

Bashir was accompanied in his previously unannounced visit by presidential affairs minister Bakri Hassan Saleh, intelligence director Mohamed Atta al-Moula Abbas and other officials.
