KHARTOUM: Egypt's President Mohamed Mursi said on Friday that cooperation between the Islamist regimes in Cairo and Khartoum does not pose any threat and yet they face "enemies", during his first visit to Sudan.

"We in Egypt and Sudan are integrated, and you will find enemies for this integration," Mursi stressed before thousands of people, including his Sudanese counterpart President Omar al-Bashir, at Al-Noor mosque in Khartoum North.

It was not clear to which "enemies" he was referring.

"This cooperation is not against anyone," Mursi said, adding the two countries "don't seek a war or aggression" against others.

Mursi, a former Muslim Brotherhood leader, assumed office last June after a popular uprising toppled long-time president Hosni Mubarak in 2011 as part of the region's Arab Spring revolts.

He arrived on Thursday evening for his first visit to Sudan, which Egypt jointly ruled with Britain until 1956, and was to leave later Friday.

On Wednesday, Egypt summoned the United Arab Emirates charge d'affaires to urge a quick conclusion to an investigation into Egyptians detained in the Gulf state on suspicion of links to the Muslim Brotherhood.
