Sudan hopes for creating unity and integration with Egypt in a framework of a joint defense agreement, reported Saturday, quoting Sudanese minister of justice, Ali Mohammed Yasin. 

The minister dismissed as baseless allegations that relations with Egypt have improved after discharging Hassan Turabi from the chairmanship of the Sudanese parliament, saying "there is no relation between discharging Turabi and improvement of relations with Egypt."  

The agency said the Sudanese official also hinted that his country "is considering unity with Libya." 

"Egypt and Libya have supported us all the time, and seeking unity with these two countries will benefit us all," he was quoted as saying -
