Sudan's Buhran visits Qatar for talks
Al-Burhan in Doha for two-day visit
Chairman of Sudan’s ruling Sovereign Council, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, arrived in Doha on Wednesday for talks with Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani.
Al-Burhan's two-day visit comes upon an invitation from the Qatari ruler, the Sovereign Council said in a statement.
Al-Burhan is accompanied by a high-profile delegation, including Foreign Mnister Mariam Sadiq al-Mahdi, Defense Minister Yassin Ibrahim Yassin and Finance and Economic Planning Minister Gibril Ibrahim.
Wednesday's visit is the first by al-Burhan to the Gulf state since former Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir was ousted by the military in April 2019 after mass protests against his rule.
