President Omar AL-Bashir and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed bilateral relations between the two countries in Istanbul on Friday.
The two presidents met in Istanbul on the sidelines of the extraordinary summit of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) on Jerusalem.
They discussed bilateral issues, particularly the outcome of president Erdogan’s recent visit to Sudan, stressing the need to implement the projects agreed especially in the field of agricultural development.
The two presidents also agreed on the importance to hold the meeting of the joint strategic cooperation council during this year.
Turkish-Sudanese relations have boosted after Erdogan’s visit to Sudan last December.
During the visit to Khartoum, the two sides signed 12 cooperation agreements and agreed to launch a strategic partnership covering agriculture, industry, minerals and health.
