Ghandour, who met Khalifa in Manama Saturday, conveyed to the Bahraini Prime Minister greetings of the Sudanese president Omer Al-Beshir and his best wishes to Bahrain and its people, lauding his keenness to promote bilateral relations and cooperation.

He underscored Sudan’s support to all measures taken by Bahrain to preserve its security and stability, adding that his country’s participation in the Saudi-led Decisive Storm Operation in Yemen stems from its keenness to support efforts to maintain regional security and stability.

The minister emphasised the importance of Khalifa’s visit to Sudan, saying it would boost cooperation between the two nations.

For his part, Khalifa stressed the importance for the Gulf States and Arab countries to start a new era of cooperation within the framework of unity in order to face economic and security challenges and promote their capabilities to abort attempts to undermine their security and stability.

He described the Arab unity as people’s utmost aspiration to foster peace and stability, praising strong brotherly ties between Bahrain and Sudan and growing bilateral cooperation regarding regional and international challenges.

Khalifa also underscored Bahrain’s keenness to strengthen ties between both countries and avail of opportunities offered by Sudan especially in agricultural and livestock production.

He further emphasised the importance of exchanging visits to solidify links and joint cooperation between officials from both countries.

The Bahraini Prime Minister further commended stances of Sudan regarding regional and Arab issues which asserts its keenness on regional security and stability.

Sudan’s foreign relations have witnessed a remarkable shift since last fall particularly in its rapprochement with the Arab Gulf states following years of chilly ties.

Last March, Sudan joined the Saudi-led military coalition against Houthi rebels who are accused by Riyadh of being a proxy to Iran in the region.

Also , Sudan has recently severed diplomatic ties with Iran following more than two decades of close relations. The move came within the framework of the newly emerging alliances in the region.
