KHARTOUM - Egypt will recognize South Sudan as an independent state after it voted to secede from Khartoum, Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Elaraby said on his first visit abroad since an uprising ousted Hosni Mubarak.

The new government also said it would introduce a new proposal to Nile Basin nations to try to overcome a stalemate on sharing the river's waters, as a seven-minister delegation headed by Egypt's prime minister arrived on Sunday in Khartoum.

"Sudan intends to be the first to recognize Juba (capital of South Sudan) and Egypt intends to be the second to recognize the south," Elaraby said in Khartoum. The delegation will visit Juba on Monday.
