KHARTOUM [LNC] – President Faustin-Archange Touadéra on Monday has arrived in Khartoum on an official two-day visit.

The visiting president would hold bilateral talks with al-Bashir to discuss ways to promote mutual cooperation.
President Arching is due to hold talks with President of the Republic Omar Al-Bashir dealing with bilateral relations and questions of mutual interests. The accompanying CAR ministers are also due to confer with their Sudanese counterparts
Elected in March 2016, Touadéra has pledged to end violence in the troubled country, which was seized by religious and inter-communal conflict from 2013, when mostly Muslim Seleka rebels overthrew long-time ruler Francois Bozize.
During a visit to Khartoum upon his election, Touadéra demanded Sudan to support his effort to bring peace and stability to his country.
The CAR shares a long border with Sudan’s western Darfur region.
In the past years, the CAR governments discussed ways to join Chad-Sudan joint border patrols with the two countries but the political instability in Bangui prevented the poor country from joining this force.
