KHARTOUM, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn on Wednesday arrived in Sudanese capital Khartoum for a two-day visit and talks with Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir.

Desalegn told reporters upon his arrival that his visit came as part of the efforts to coordinate and complete the consultations between the two countries regarding issues of mutual concern.

The Ethiopian prime minister held close-door talks with the Sudanese president Wednesday. Officials from the two sides are also expected to hold joint talks later in the day.

Ethiopia has played an important role in mediating the outstanding issues between Sudan and South Sudan.

On Sept. 27, Sudan and South Sudan signed a package of agreements on various issues during a presidential summit in Addis Ababa of Ethiopia.

Witnessed by the members of the African Union High-Level Implementation Panel on Sudan (AUHIP), the two sides inked three deals on cooperation, security and post-secession matters.
