The official announcement on the establishment of official diplomatic ties could come as soon as this weekend. The move believed to be tied to recent US decision to remove Sudan from list of state sponsors of terrorism.
After months of deliberations and under US mediation, Sudan is set to announce plans to normalize its ties with Israel, officials privy to the move told Israel Hayom today.
Israel Hayom Khartoum is likely to make an official announcement on the issue this coming weekend, the official noted, likely after US President Donald Trump and Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, chairman of the Sovereignty Council of Sudan, discuss the projected timeline.
The expected Sudanese announcement of recognizing the Jewish state will join the historic Abraham Accords signed between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain on Sept. 15.
Khartoum’s move has been linked to the recent US decision to remove Sudan from list of state sponsors of terrorism. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Wednesday he hoped Sudan will soon recognize Israel.
