During his two-day visit to Khartoum Lamamra will meet the head of the Sovereign Council and Prie Minister Abdallah Hamdok.

In a tweet posted after his arrival to Khartoum, the Algerian top diplomat did not develop on the purpose of his visit. He only said he looks towards meeting with senior Sudanese officials.

He arrived from Addi Ababa where he met with President Sahle-Work Zewde and Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and Foreign Minister Demeke Mekonnen.

Mekonnen said he discussed with Lamamra the GERD crisis and the border dispute with Sudan.

He requested "the Algerian Foreign Minister to help to correct the Arab League’s position on the GERD, referring to the support of the Arab body to Egypt and Sudans.

On the border dispute, he asked to bring Sudan to negotiate with Ethiopia on the ownership of the Al-Fashaga border area.

Sudan refuses to negotiate with Ethiopia as the two countries signed two agreements on the border demarcation.

Algeria mediated a peace agreement between Ethiopia and Eritrea over the border area of Badme.

From 2008 to 2013, Lamamra was the commissioner of the African Union Peace and Security Council.
