Sudan’s Bashir goes to Riyadh


Sudan President Omar al-Bashir will travel to Saudi Arabia on Friday but there is no confirmation he will meet with US President Donald Trump, who will also visit the country, Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour said.

“I can confirm President Bashir will go to Saudi Arabia,” Ghandour told reporters in Geneva, declining to confirm whether Bashir would speak with Trump.

Ghandour also said the UN special envoy to Yemen proposed a humanitarian ceasefire in Yemen during the month of Ramadan and he hoped it would take effect.
