He will also discuss in Cairo the role of Egypt in boosting the infrastructures, education, agriculture in south Sudan, and ways to make the unity an attractive option.

Egypt seems worry by the possible perspective of the creation of a new state in southern Sudan after the 2011 referendum.

Khalil Ibrahim the leader of the rebel JEM is expected to be tomorrow in Cairo to hold talks with the Egyptian officials. He and other leaders of the National redemption Front are invited by Egypt for consultations on Darfur crisis with the official there.

The First Vice - President will be accompanied during the visit with the Presidential Advisor, Dr. Mansour Khalid, the State Minister at the Presidency, Telar Deng, the State Minister for Foreign Affairs, Al-Samani Al-Wasila, along with a number of ministers in South Sudan Government.
