Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad has paid an official visit to the Sudanese capital Khartoum. Before coming to Sudan, Ahmedinejad wrapped up his visit to New York for the 66th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
The Iranian President and his Sudanese counterpart, Omar al-Bashir, held talks on bilateral relations and the latest developments in the Middle East and North Africa.
Ahmadinejad warned against plots of enemies to harm Muslim countries and stressed the unity and resistance against arrogant powers. The Iranian president praised Sudan's support for Muslim nations, particularly the Palestinian people.
Ahmadinejad stressed that resistance is a prerequisite for triumph and said Muslim countries will achieve victory against the enemies if they preserve their unity.
He also said there will be more cooperation between Iran and Sudan at all levels.
Omar al-Bashir, on his part, highlighted the significance of unity among Muslims and disclosing enemies' plots, aiming to sow discord among Muslim nations.
In an address to high-ranking delegations from Iran and Sudan, al-Bashir underlined the significance of bilateral relations and said the two nations can benefit from each other's rich natural resources in the interest of their people and the Muslim world.
President Ahmadinejad arrived in the capital Khartoum early Monday at the head of a high-ranking delegation after a short visit to Mauritania.
The Iranian president's visit to Sudan confirms the strong political relations and economic exchange between the two countries. Will this strength between the two countries weaken their enemies remains to be seen.
