President Donald Trump, Sudanese Chairman of the Sovereignty Council Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke today to discuss joining UAE and Bahrain in normalization of relations with Israel to make a start in the direction toward democracy and to advance peace in the region. For decades the people of Sudan have lived under a brutal dictatorship. It has now formed the Sudanese transitional government demonstrating a sincere desire to combat terrorism, to build democratic institutions, and improve its relations with its neighbors.
In the light of this historic progress, President Trump has removed Sudan from the list of State Sponsors to terrorism. The United States and Israel have agreed to partner with Sudan in its new start. This includes to reduce their debts, improving food security, and countering terrorism in its country and around it. The leaders agreed to the normalization of relations between Sudan and Israel to end the belligerence between the two nations.
Egypt’s President Al-Sisi welcomed the Israel – Sudan normalization. He said, I value all efforts aimed at establishing peace and stability in the region. Egypt became the first Arab nation to sign a peace treaty with Israel in 1979. They were followed by Jordan in 1994. Sudan now became the third Arab nation in the past two months to normalize relations with Israel.
Iran called the US brokered Sudan-Israel deal secured by “ransom.” They are closing their eyes to the captivity of the Palestinians. Meanwhile in Khartoum Sudan small protests took place with the protesters burning an Israeli flag.
