Sudanese leaders have signed a significant deal with the US, paving the way for the nation to strengthen ties with Israel.
A statement from the Prime Minister’s office confirmed the so called “Abraham Accords” agreement was signed by Justice Minister Nasredeen Abdulbari while US treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin was visiting the country.
The foreign policy deals seek to reunite Muslim majority countries with Israel and build bridges of peace and unity.
Sudan becomes the third Arab state to agree to the treaty after the UAE and Bahrain signed up in 2020.
Before the introduction of the Abraham Accords, peace deals with Israel were scarce, with Jordan the last to do so in 1994.
Sudan is expected to start normalising ties with Israel later this year, and will be removed from the list of state sponsors of terrorism.
