December 14, 2017 (KHARTOUM) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will start a two-day visit to Sudan on Sunday at the invitation of his Sudanese counterpart, the foreign ministry announced on Thursday.

"The visit comes within the framework of deepening the relations between the two countries, which are based on deep-rooted historical, cultural and social ties. Also, it aims to strengthen the existing economic and trade partnerships between the two countries," said Foreign Ministry spokesperson Garib Allah Khidir.

Khidir said the two countries will sign a number of agreements to strengthen the existing economic partnerships in the field of investment, agricultural production, higher education, environment, military, mining, energy, health and tourism.

The visit will witness the convening of the Sudanese Turkish economic forum, which will be attended by more than one hundred and fifty Turkish companies and businessmen. President al-Bashir and Erdogan will address the meeting.

The Turkish president who chairs the Islamic Cooperation Conference will address the Sudanese parliament on Sunday evening after his arrival to Khartoum.

He is expected to speak about the outcome of the recent extraordinary Islamic on Jerusalem.

Erdogan will visit several Ottoman historical sites in eastern Sudan town of Suakin which was an important port for trade for centuries. Also, he will visit Port Sudan town, the country main port on the Red Sea to attend the signing of a free trade area agreement.

    Good for him and bashir. this dude really wants to be Sultan so badly. Turkish investents in Sudan are just about $2 billion whereas Saudi registered investments are upto $15 billion. turkey has to work much harder than that to gain its old influence in sudan during the days of the ottoman empire
