The visit comes after months of tension in the relationship between the two countries, as the Sudanese government rejected Kenya’s chairmanship of the IGAD Quartet on the Sudanese crisis.
Sudan’s sovereign council said in a statement that Burhan’s visit to Nairobi came at the invitation of Kenyan President William Ruto.
Al-Burhan and Ruto held a session of joint talks at the presidential palace on aspects of joint cooperation between the two countries and ways to strengthen and develop relations in all fields, as well as developments in Sudan and exchange views on issues of common interest. According to a statement by the Sovereign Council.
Al-Burhan briefed the Kenyan president on the developments and course of the situation in Sudan, accusing the Rapid Support Forces of rebellion, practicing terrorism against citizens and civilian objects, and committing serious crimes against civilians.
He stressed the government’s determination to find radical solutions to the Sudanese crisis, end the suffering of citizens and end the war in the country.
For his part, Kenyan President William Ruto affirmed his country’s support for peace and stability in Sudan, and work to support the Sudanese government’s efforts to sustain peace and stability and end the war in Sudan.
Ruto reiterated Kenya’s determination to strengthen relations with Sudan to serve the common interests of both countries.
The two sides also touched on peace initiatives, including the Jeddah platform and the IGAD peace process, and stressed the urgent need to find solutions to the crisis in Sudan as soon as possible.
They also agreed on the progress made in Jeddah, stressing the need to accelerate the negotiating process to reach a ceasefire and cessation of hostilities.
The two sides also agreed on the need to hold an emergency summit of IGAD heads within the framework of efforts for a ceasefire and to develop a framework for a comprehensive Sudanese dialogue that does not exclude anyone.
Al-Burhan was accompanied during the visit by Foreign Minister-designate Ambassador Ali Al-Sadiq and Director of the General Intelligence Service General Ahmed Ibrahim Mufaddal.
