Sudanese President Omer al-Bashir is to visit Cairo Wednesday on his second travel abroad since the International Criminal Court (ICC) issued an arrest warrant against him earlier this month, Qatar's Al-Jazeera television reported on Tuesday.

The Arabic-language Al-Jazeera channel said that the Sudanese president would hold talks in Cairo with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on the latest developments in Sudan, especially after the issuance of the ICC arrest warrant.

Meanwhile, Qatari Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Hamad Bin Jasim Bin Jabir Al-thani arrived in Khartoum on Tuesday for talks with the Sudanese president.

Al-Bashir has expressed his intention to take part in an annual Arab summit meeting scheduled in the Qatari capital Doha at the end of this month.

A fatwa (religious advice) issued by a powerful council of the Sunni religious advisories last week urged the Sudanese president to cancel his plan to attend the Doha summit in view of the effects of the ICC proceedings.

At the weekend, the Sudanese capital Khartoum witnessed protests and demonstrations calling on President al-Bashir to restrain himself from travelling to other countries.

On Monday, the Sudanese president paid a previously unannounced visit to Eritrea, which was described by local observers as "symbolic."

Both Egypt and Eritrea, just like Sudan, are not members of the Hague-based ICC, whose prosecutor has called on its member states to apprehend the Sudanese president during his travels abroad.
