Sudan Israel Agreement

Delegations from different countries will meet in the coming weeks to negotiate cooperation agreements in these areas, as well as in the fields of agricultural technology, aviation, migration and other areas, he said. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the agreement was a “dramatic breakthrough for peace” and the beginning of a “new era.” The agreement between Israel and Sudan, announced on Friday, was a historic step forward, but the road to a formal peace treaty and the establishment of full diplomatic relations could be further complicated and time-consuming. Meanwhile, the development of cooperation between Hemeti and Hamdok has made a breakthrough in efforts to restore internal peace, with rebel groups represented by the Sudan Revolutionary Front signing the Juba Agreement earlier this month. All these groups support rapprochement with Israel and are opposed to political Islam. Abdel Wahid al-Nur – the leader of the most powerful rebel group, the Sudan Liberation MOVEMENT (MLS), which is still negotiating its own peace agreement in Paris – has already made a public statement in which he welcomes the normalization. Another prominent rebel figure, Abdelaziz Hilu of the People`s Liberation Movement of North Sudan (SPLM-N), will follow. Hamdok, an experienced economist, apparently concluded that he could take advantage of the practical advantages of normalization to overcome resistance from communists, Nasserites, Baathists and Islamists. Indeed, so far, these groups have failed to organize sensible protests against the agreement and have not left the government. “This is obviously a big step forward,” Kushner told Reuters news agency. “It is clear that this will create a great breakthrough between Israel and Sudan. It is not so easy to conclude peace agreements as we do today. They are very difficult to do.┬áPalestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said he opposed the new agreement and said no one had the right to speak on behalf of the Palestinians. Hamas, which controls Gaza, spoke of a “political sin.” Until last month, only two Arab nations – Egypt and Jordan – had officially recognized Israel.

The two countries bordering Israel signed peace agreements in 1979 and 1994 through the United States. As part of the deal, Trump took steps to remove Sudan from a list of U.S. government countries accused of promoting terrorism. U.S. President Donald Trump, who sought re-election on November 3, sealed the deal in a telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and Transitional Council chief Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, senior U.S. officials said. Donald Trump sealed the deal Friday in a telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, his Sudanese counterpart Abdalla Hamdok and Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, head of Sudan`s Sovereign Council.
