On Thursday, the Sudanese Defence Minister Yassen Ibrahim arrived as he leads the government delegation for talks with the armed groups on security arrangements which is the last agenda in the negotiating table.

In a statement extended to Sudan Tribune Osama Said, SRF Spokesman, said that they held separate meetings with Abbas Kamel the head of Egyptian intelligence service and Khaled Saif Al Shamsi, a United Arab Emirates (UAE)’s official tasked with the Sudan file.

"His Excellency Major General Abbas Kamel assured (the SRF leadership) of Egypt’s unlimited support for the peace process and Egypt’s readiness to contribute to its success, as it is a partner and supporter of the peace process in Sudan," said Osama.

For the meeting with the Emirati official, he said: "The meeting dealt with the UAE’s role in support of the peace process in Sudan and its expected role in the implementation of the peace agreement to be signed with the government of Sudan during the next few days".

The SRF official did not elaborate on the details of the support the two countries re expected to provide to Sudan.
