S. Sudan president in Khartoum for talks on bilateral ties
Addis Ababa, 6 April 2014 (WIC) - South Sudan President Salva Kiir Mayardit on Saturday arrived in Khartoum in an official one-day visit for talks with his Sudanese counterpart Omar al-Bashir dealing with bilateral relations.
Kiir was received upon arrival at Khartoum airport by al-Bashir and a number of government officials.
Sudan foreign ministry spokesman Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq said that Kiir's visit comes in response to an invitation by President al- Bashir during his recent visit to Juba.
He added that the visit comes as part of the continual communication between the two countries' leadership to develop the ties between the two countries.
South Sudan has been witnessing bloody clashes between government troops and forces loyal to former vice-president Riek Machar since mid-September last year. (Xinhua)
