And as a sign of the improved relations between the two countries who were on opposite sides of the South Sudan liberation war, and were once geopolitical foes, President Al-Bashir will be accompanied by Ministers, Senior Officials and a business delegation.

The highpoint of the visit is a Sudan-Uganda Business Forum to be held on Tuesday.

- Rights groups on Monday urged Ugandan authorities to arrest the visiting president of Sudan, who has always been wanted by the International Criminal Court for serious crimes.

The ICC has two pending arrest warrants issued in 2009 and 2010 for Bashir over five counts of crimes against humanity including murder, extermination, torture and rape allegedly committed between 2003 and 2008 in the Darfur region. Now, the Sudanese government has designated Tarco airline to fly to Entebbe, easing flights between Uganda and Sudan.
