"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".
