Egyptian, Sudanese summit held in Cairo
An initial agreement was reached Sunday between Egypt and Sudan allowing freedom of movement, residence, work and property rights to boost cooperation. According to DPA, Egyptian Information Minister Safwat al-Sherif said President Hosni Mubarak and his Sudanese peer Omar al-Bashir had discussed several agreements during a short summit in Cairo Sunday.
Despite speculation that the meeting would focus on obstacles in negotiations between al-Bashir's government and the Sudan People's Liberation Army, there was no mention of the issue.
