Sudan and Egypt restored full diplomatic relations in 2000
The Sudanese parliament has ratified an agreement with Egypt that allows citizens of the two countries to live and work in each other's territory.

The parliament approved the so-called Four Freedoms Agreement on Tuesday, which was concluded between Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and Sudanese President Omar el-Bashir in Cairo in January.

The agreement gives Egyptians and Sudanese freedom of movement, residence, work and ownership in either country.

Sudan and Egypt broke relations in 1995 after Egypt accused Sudan of giving sanctuary to people involved in the failed attempt to assassinate Mubarak in Ethiopia that year.

They restored full diplomatic relations in 2000.
