In joint meetings between Egypt and Sudan, the Sudanese ambassador to Egypt spoke about the Hala'ib triangle region. Both countries claim rule over the desert region by the Red Sea. It is important because oil companies have wanted to drill in the region. The Beja Bisharin tribe live in the area.
Ambassador Lt. Gen ® Abdul Rahman Sir Al Ketim said that this year will witness opening of three highways that link Sudan with Egypt. He explained that the Halib issue was one of the issues that were not discussed in the past, but at the joint meetings it was being publicly discussed and committees were formed to submit proposals to make Halib an area of bilateral cooperation between the two countries.
