CAIRO, May 14 (Xinhua) -- Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi underscored the importance of Sudan's stability and security, Egyptian presidency said Tuesday.

Sisi's remarks came during his meeting in Cairo with the Chairman of the African Union High Level Implementation Panel Thabo Mbeki.

In an official statement, Egyptian presidency's spokesman Bassam Rady said that Sisi and Mbeki discussed Egypt's efforts to support Sudan, especially through a consultation summit hosted by Cairo for Sudan's regional partners last April.

The summit aimed to bolster regional consultation and determine the grounds for clear understanding from the regional parties with a stake in the developments in the country.

Sudan has been witnessing instability after the ouster of longtime ruler Omar Al-Bashir in last month.

Sisi also discussed providing aid to Sudan to help the country to complete its transitional phase successfully and fulfill the legitimate aspirations of the Sudanese people.

For his part, Mbeki, former president of South Africa, hailed Egypt's significant role in ensuring peace and security in Africa, especially during its current presidency of the African Union (AU).

Mbeki said that Egypt assumed the AU chairmanship during a critical period in the bloc's history, highlighting the key role Egypt plays in supporting cooperation within Africa. Enditem
