Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir and his Eritrean counterpart Isaias Afwerki on Sunday officially inaugurated the seventh Tourism and Shopping Festival in Port-Sudan, the capital city of the Red Sea state in eastern Sudan.
“The tourism and shopping festival has contributed to the improvement of the economic and social conditions in the Red Sea state and the reflection of Sudan’s tourist potentiality,” said al- Bashir.
Meanwhile, al-Bashir praised the Sudanese-Eritrean ties, saying that “we have worked together since Eritrea was under the colonial rule; together we led the struggle for the liberation of Eritrea and today our efforts join together to achieve the interests of our peoples.”
“The borders drawn by the colonialists will not be a barrier to prevent communication between our two brotherly peoples,” he added.
Afwerki, for his part, commended the idea of the festival.
The tourism and shopping festival, which is organized during mid November and mid February each year, constitutes one of the biggest tourism festivals in Sudan as it avails the opportunity to inform with the cultural heritage of the Red Sea state in eastern Sudan.
