ALGIERS- Foreign Minister Sabri Boukadoum held discussions on the sidelines of his visit to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Tuesday, with his Sudanese counterpart, Omar Qamar El Din,
with whom he broached the bilateral brotherly relations and regional issues of common interest.
“On the sidelines of the official visit I’m paying to the DRC, I have had discussions Tuesday with Omar Qamar El Din, the foreign minister of Sudan, a sister country,” Boukadoum tweeted.
The minister added that the talks were an opportunity for the two sides to “consult each other on the bilateral ties of fraternity and regional issues of common interest, and mainly the dam of Renaissance and its fallout on the region’s stability.”
Boukadoum is on an official visit to Democratic Republic of Congo, during which he was received by President Félix-Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo, the ministry of Foreign Affairs said Tuesday in a statement.
Boukadoum conveyed to the Congolese president a message from President of the Republic Abdelmadjid Tebboune, and discussed with his counterpart, Tumba Nzeza Marie, the foreign minister of the DRC.
The minister’s trip to Kinshasa is part of the actions to bolster bilateral ties, examine ways and means to develop cooperation, and make consultations on regional and international issues of common interest, especially ahead of DRC’s presidency of the African Union (AU).
