Macierewicz, who met Sudan’s foreign minister Ibrahim Ghandour in Warsaw on Saturday, pointed to Sudan’s regional importance, expressing his country’s readiness for security and military cooperation with the east African nation.

According to the official news agency SUNA Ghandour briefed the Polish minister on the Sudanese experience in establishing the joint border control force with Chad, pointing to the possibility of forming similar forces with Ethiopia and Libya.
