Sudanese President Al Bashir heads for Uganda

In a sign of thawing relations between the two countries, Sudanese President Omar Al Bashir arrives in Kampala on Thursday as part of a two-day visit to Uganda to discuss bilateral ties and the situation in South Sudan with Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.

Sudan's Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour, the director of the security services, Mohamed Atta, the Minister of Presidential Affairs Fadl Abdallah Fadl and several other ministers, are accompanying Al Bashir to Kampala. Their arrival coincides with the heads of 17 states' arrival in Kampala as guests of Thursday's inauguration of Museveni.

The US and European Union, strong critics of Museveni, were not invited. Ties between Sudan and Uganda have been strained over the last ten years with both governments trading accusations of support for rebel groups in South Sudan from the other side. Khartoum accused Kampala of backing rebel groups from Darfur and the Two Areas while the latter accused the former of supporting the Lord Resistance Army (LRA), reported The Sudan Tribune.
