Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir met on Sunday with his Egyptian counterpart, Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi in Cairo, in defiance of the International Criminal Court's two arrest warrants against him, the Daily Star reported.

Ahead of Bashir's trip, human rights organization Amnesty International called on Egypt to withdraw its invitation to the Sudanese leader "and arrest him if he travels to Cairo."

According to Egyptian news agency Al Ahram, Morsi received his Sudanese counterpart at the Presidential Palace in Cairo's Heliopolis district, where they agreed to inaugurate an Egypt-Sudan highway and the Sudanese branch of Egypt's National Bank by the end of this week.
