Sudan’s Bashir goes to Riyadh, no word on Trump meeting: minister


Sudan’s President Omar Hassan al-Bashir

Sudan President Omar al-Bashir will travel to Saudi Arabia on Friday but there is no confirmation he will meet with U.S. President Donald Trump, who will also visit the country, Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour said on Wednesday.

“I can confirm that President Bashir will go the day after tomorrow to Saudi Arabia,” Ghandour told reporters in Geneva, declining to confirm whether Bashir would speak with Trump.

Ghandour also said the U.N. special envoy to Yemen had proposed a humanitarian ceasefire in Yemen during the month of Ramadan and he hoped it would take effect.

(This version of the story corrects third paragraph to refer to U.N. Yemen envoy, not Yemen’s envoy to the U.N.)
