Egypt, Kuwait Sign $2.5 Million Railway to Sudan Deal 

Egypt and Kuwait have agreed to collaborate on the construction of a train connecting Egypt and Sudan.

The $2.5 million deal was inked by Egypt’s Ministry of International Cooperation and Kuwait’s official aid agency, the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development.

According to the ministry, the two firms will perform feasibility studies for a proposed 570-kilometre (354-mile) railway route connecting Egypt to its southern border Sudan.

The deal was signed during a summit of Arab financial institutions now taking place in Saudi Arabia.

According to the Egyptian state-owned news station Al-Ahram, the railway between the two countries was first proposed in 2010 but garnered renewed interest in 2018.
