Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) Sudanese interim premier, Abdulah Hamdouk, heads to Paris Sunday, having finished his participation in the 74th U.N. General Assembly session, according to state-run SUNA agency.
Hamdouk is making the visit as per an invitation from President Emmanuel Macron, leading a high-profile delegation, SUNA quoted a foreign ministry official as saying.
Besides a meeting with Macron, Hamdouk is scheduled to meet with officials at the French economy, finance and foreign affairs ministries to discuss means to boost bilateral ties.
French foreign minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian visited Sudan in the middle of this month, voicing support for the government which was sworn in earlier.
Protest groups, which managed to force the ouster of former president Omar Bashir in April, agreed in August on a 39-month transitional period with the military, according to which Hamdouk, a former UN economy expert, was appointed as head of an interim government.
