Sudan’s official news agency (SUNA) said that Erdogan inquired on Bashir’s health following his left knee surgery over the weekend.

 

Erdogan, who is currently Turkey’s Prime Minister, praised Bashir and his country’s strong stances on the Gaza crisis and his support of other issues in the Islamic world.

 

Bashir also applauded Erdogan’s courageous international positions in supporting just causes in the world.

 

The two sides also discussed progress of bilateral relations, SUNA reported and also exchanged visit invitations.

 

Erdogan was supposed to visit Sudan since 2012 to inaugurate a Turkey-funded hospital in Darfur but his trip kept getting postponed for unknown reasons.

 

In late 2009, Bashir who is a target of an arrest warrant by the International Criminal Court (ICC) over alleged war crimes and genocide in Darfur, cancelled a visit to Turkey to attend the Standing Committee for Economic and Commercial Cooperation (COMCEC) of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) following intense international pressure.
