The Address | Benghazi – Libya
KHARTOUM – Egypt and Sudan, which face cross-border threats from militias operating in Libya, agreed on Sunday to set up joint military patrols on their border, Reuters reported.
Libya, with which Egypt and Sudan have a joint border, has been riven by armed militias and migrant-smugglers for several years.
“It was agreed to establish joint military patrols between the two countries’ borders, establish mechanisms to control the border and establish future joint forces on the border to combat terrorism, cross-border crimes, control the border and combat all manifestations of evasion,” Sudanese Chief of Staff Kamal Abdul Maarouf told reporters.
He said the two militaries would form a strategic partnership in all fields, especially intelligence and operational cooperation and training.
