What could have been if President Trump had a second term? It’s heartbreaking.
Sudanese delegation said planning first visit to Israel next week
Group will include security and intelligence officials, report says; Khartoum voted last week to annul so-called Israel boycott law as part of the normalization efforts
By Times of Israel, April 13, 2021
Sudan is tentatively planning to send its first official delegation to Israel next week following the normalization agreement between Jerusalem and Khartoum, according to a Tuesday report.
The Sudanese representatives will include security and intelligence officials, the Reuters news agency reported, citing an anonymous source.
Intelligence Minister Eli Cohen visited Sudan in January, becoming the first Israeli minister to visit the Arab country following the signing of a normalization deal between the two countries.
Cohen led a delegation from his ministry and from the National Security Council, holding talks with senior Sudanese officials, including Gen. Abdel-Fattah Burhan, head of the ruling sovereign council, and Defense Minister Yassin Ibrahim. Cohen signed a memorandum of understanding with Ibrahim on security-related issues and invited Sudanese leaders to visit Israel.
The planned visit by the Sudanese delegation came after ministers in Khartoum voted last week to annul the so-called Israel boycott law as part of the normalization efforts.
The decision to scrap the 1958 law was confirmed by the Sudanese prime minister’s office, which said ministers also affirmed Sudan’s support for the establishment of a Palestinian state as part of a two-state solution.
A joint vote of the cabinet and the ruling sovereignty council must still be held before the law is removed from the books.
The legislation barred the establishment of diplomatic relations with Israel and forbade any business ties with the Jewish state. Penalties for those who violated its stipulations, such as trading with Israelis, included up to 10 years in prison and a hefty fine.
In January, Sudan signed onto the Abraham Accords with the United States, paving the way for the African country to normalize ties with Israel.
The signing came just over two months after then-US president Donald Trump announced that Sudan would start to normalize ties with Israel.
Before Sudan, the Trump administration engineered diplomatic pacts late last year between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and between Israel and Bahrain. Morocco also reestablished diplomatic relations with Israel after cutting ties in 2000 in solidarity with Palestinians during the Second Intifada.
