"During the upcoming Official Visit by President Omer al-Bashir, a number of areas of cooperation will be discussed including trade and investment, agriculture, regional peace and security as well as international matters of mutual interest," said a statement on Saturday.

Human rights activists have in the past urged Uganda to arrest the Sudanese leader who is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Also, President al-Bashir attended the inauguration of President Museveni in May 2016 and the latter visited Khartoum in October of the same year to attend the final session of National Dialogue Conference.

The Sudanese Undersecretary of Ministry of Foreign Affairs Abdel-Ghani Al-Nai’m visited Kampala to prepare for the visit and met his counterpart Patrick Mugoya on 5-6 October 2017. The two parties agreed to implement the decisions during the latest joint commission meetings held in Khartoum earlier this year.

"Among the issues they discussed were opportunities for trade and investment, immigration, air transport, regional issues and security matters," said the statement.

Sudan imports 20% of Uganda coffee and is the single biggest export market for the product from which about $100 million is earned.

    Bashir and M7 have now patched their differences and are both eyeing the vast resources of S. Sudan, since the Mayor of Juba (Kiir) and his tribal JCE minders have lost all vision and are now running around like headless chicken, therefore creating a huge gap to be exploited.

    These stooges have reduced our nation to an extend that we are now dealing with weird people disguised as prophets.
