Dagher was received at Khartoum airport by Sudan’s First Vice-President Bakri Hassan Salih and a number of ministers and state ministers besides members of the Yemeni embassy in Khartoum.

Yemen News Agency (SABA) Sunday said Dagher would hand al-Bashir a message from Hadi pertaining to the latest developments in Yemen including peace talks in Kuwait, the Gulf initiative and the outcome of the national dialogue.

The four-months UN-sponsored talks for establishing peace in Yemen have ended in early August without a breakthrough, as fighting continues between government forces from one side and Houthi fighters and the party of former President Ali Abdallah Saleh from the other.

According to SABA, Dagher would also meet with the Yemeni community in Sudan and check on conditions of the injured Yemeni’s who are receiving treatment in Sudan’s hospitals.

Sudan had received hundreds of wounded Yemenis and their family members.They arrived in Sudan as part of the agreement signed between the Sudanese Red Crescent (SRC) and King Salman Center for Humanitarian Aid (KSCHA).

Last February, the KSCHA and the SRC signed three agreements pertaining to supporting the rare specialties, supporting medical cadres inside Yemen besides treatment of wounded Yemenis in Sudanese hospitals.

According to SABA Dagher’s visit comes within the framework of strengthening ties between the two countries and to express Yemen’s gratitude to the Sudanese people and government for participating in the Arab coalition in Yemen.

Sudan participates with over 850 troops in the Saudi-led "Decisive Storm" coalition against the Iranian-allied Houthi militants in Yemen.

The Yemni Prime Minister was accompanied by the Foreign Minister Abdel-Malik al-Mukhlafi, Minister of Civil Services and Insurance Abdel-Aziz Gibari besides electricity, health and youth ministers and state minister Hani bin Braik and the newly appointed Sudanese ambassador to Yemen Mohamed al-Dabi.


Meanwhile, the Sudanese and Yemeni sides held joint discussions on bilateral ties and latest developments in Yemen.

Sudan’s Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour told reporters following the meeting that the Sudanese side stressed that the legitimate government in Yemen must be reinstated, saying they were being briefed on the peace talks that took place in Kuwait.

According to Ghandour, Sudanese government underscored full coordination with the Arab coalition countries led by Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.

He added the meeting directed foreign ministers of the two countries to follow-up on the developments of the Arab position toward the situation in Yemen, saying the two sides would hold further discussions on joint cooperation between the two countries.

For his part, Yemen’s Foreign Minister Abdel-Malik al-Mukhlafi said the visit comes within the framework of the historic relations between the two nations, praising Sudan’s participation in the Arab coalition.

He also hailed support rendered by Sudan to Yemen in the regional and international forums, stressing the need to confront all sectarian schemes aimed at dividing the Arab nations.
