KHARTOUM, Sudan, April 6 (UPI) -- Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi called for closer ties with Sudan as he ended a two-day visit Saturday to his country's southern neighbor.

Appearing at a news conference with Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, Morsi

said there is no real border dispute between the two countries. He called for a three-way summit with Libya to settle any border issues.

"Egypt's ties stumbled in the past, but now we are together, with possibilities of enhancing cooperation that satisfies the interests of all sides," Morsi said. "Mutual talks in this respect are currently ongoing, and we welcome the restoration of old relations with Africa."

Bashir called for transportation improvements to allow better movement of goods in the region, Egypt's Middle East News Agency said.

"There is currently a plan to build a railroad, to overcome obstacles we inherited from the colonial era that deliberately worked to block any roads between both states," Bashir said.
