Abdel Fattah al-Burhan concluded a two-day visit to Doha where held talks with the Emir of Qatar Tamim bin Hamad, his government officials, Qatari businessmen and the large Sudanese community in Doha.

Before returning to Khartoum, al-Burhan told reporters in Doha that he agreed with Tamim to "reactivate bilateral agreements and visits".

Al-Burhan said that there are more than 36 agreements and protocols between Sudan and Qatar that will be reactivated. Also, a government and businessmen delegation will visit Khartoum next week to discuss cooperation and investment in Sudan.

Also, he requested that Qatar continue its support for peace in Sudan pointing to its previous efforts to end the conflict but also as one of the guarantors of the Juba Peace Agreement.

On 31 January 2021, Mohamed Hamdan Daglo "Hemetti" visited Doha where he met with the Emir and government officials.

Hemetti, at the time, spoke about "was frank and direct" with Tamim about bilateral relations, as the Sudanese government official abstained from visiting his country during the rift with Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain.
