Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud arrived in Sudan on Tuesday (January 1st) to celebrate the 57th anniversary of the country's independence, UN-funded Radio Bar-Kulan reported.
Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir is expected to hold talks with Mohamud to discuss ways to strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries.
Mohamud is expected to continue on to Bujumbura, Burundi, after leaving Sudan, according to the Somali National News Agency.
He recently visited several other East African countries, including Djibouti, Uganda, Ethiopia and Kenya. All four of these countries are members of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development and currently have troops fighting al-Shabaab in Somalia.
