(AP) Egypt's president is visiting Sudan, his first trip to his country's southern neighbor since he took office nine months ago.


Mohammed Morsi's two-day visit is the longest by an Egyptian president to Sudan in decades. It underlines Egypt's renewed interest in boosting cooperation after what was seen as neglect and deteriorating relations under ousted leader Hosni Mubarak.


Mubarak accused Sudan of harboring suspects in the 1995 assassination attempt against him in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa.


Morsi was greeted Thursday by Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, a fellow Islamist.


A large business delegation traveled with Morsi, a sign his government is interested in increased economic cooperation with Sudan. The two countries share a long border, and the Nile River runs through both.
