Egypt: Morsy Stresses Entrenched Relations Between Egypt, Sudan

President Mohamed Morsy Thursday called on Egyptians to focus on production and work, handle disagreements in a democratic way and renounce violence.

On his Twitter account, Morsy said that the current stage requires paying more attention to production and work, ending differences via democracy and rejecting all forms of violence.

On the other hand, Morsy received on Thursday 03/01/2012 a message from his Sudanese counterpart Omar al-Bashir related to bilateral cooperation and Egypt-Sudan growing relations.

Sudanese Foreign Minister Ali Karti handed over the message to Morsy during a meeting.

"The Sudanese foreign minister extended thanks to President Morsy for Egypt's continued support to Sudan in the different developmental fields," said Presidential Spokesman Yasser Ali.

During the meeting, Karti briefed Morsy on the recent developments in Sudan including ties between North and South Sudan.

For his part, Morsy expressed Egypt's readiness to mediate and bring closer the view points between the Sudan and South Sudan.
