Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok arrived in Ethiopia on Sunday to discuss security matters with Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali.
Last month, the Ethiopian government launched a military offensive against a rebellious regional government in Tigray.
The ensuing conflict has killed hundreds, and almost 50,000 Ethiopians have crossed the country’s northwestern border into Sudan.
It is a refugee crisis that is straining the humanitarian infrastructure in Sudan.
“I look forward to having productive discussions on political, humanitarian and security matters of common concern that serve the future of peace, stability and prosperity for our two sisterly nations and the region,” he said.
The United Nations refugee agency has appealed for $150 million to help cope with the situation.
