Sudanese President Omer al-Bashir returned to his country Sunday evening after paying a short visit to Cairo where he held talks with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
Mahjoub Fadel, the spokesman of the Sudanese president, told reporters in Khartoum that talks between the Sudanese and Egyptian presidents focused on bilateral relations, implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in Sudan and the situation in Darfur.
He said the two presidents also discussed an Arab-African initiative sponsored by Qatar calling for a resumption of peace negotiations between the Sudanese government and rebel movements in Darfur.
The talks also dealt with the possible impacts on Sudan of an arrest warrant, which was expected to be issued soon by the International Criminal Courts (ICC) against Sudanese President al- Bashir on charges of so-called genocide and war crimes, the spokesman added.
"The viewpoints of the two sides are identical on all the issues," the spokesman noted.
The Egyptian president also reiterated his country's position supporting Sudan, the spokesman said, adding that the Egyptian president promised to continuously exert efforts with the Islamic Conference Organization, the Arab League and the African Union to back the position of Sudan.
The visit by the Sudanese president to Egypt followed a visit paid by Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani on Saturday to Khartoum where he held closed-door talks with the Sudanese president.
Last Tuesday the Qatari government sponsored a goodwill agreement between the Sudanese government and the rebel Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) to engage peace talks for a resolution of the six-year conflict in Darfur.
But other rebel groups in Darfur boycotted the weeklong Doha talks, claiming that the talks would be helpful for the Sudanese government to confront steps to be taken by the ICC against the Sudanese president.
