Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir arrived here on Wednesday on an unannounced visit to Egypt, his second travel abroad since the International Criminal Court (ICC) issued an arrest warrant against him earlier this month.

During the visit, al-Bashir is expected to have talks with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on the latest developments in Sudan, particularly the dispute between Sudan and the ICC.

On March 4, the Hague-based ICC issued an arrest warrant against al-Bashir for alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity in Sudan's restive western region of Darfur between 2003 and 2008.

Egypt has always been trying to mediate for the settlement of the Sudanese issue in a moderate way, expressing concerns about the ICC move against al-Bashir.

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 ICC, whose prosecutor has called on its member states to apprehend the Sudanese president during his travels abroad.

Al-Bashir has also expressed his intention to take part in an annual Arab summit meeting, which was scheduled to be held in the Qatari capital of Doha late this March.
