Israel Peace Agreement Sudan

« This is one of the great days in Sudan`s history, » Trump said, adding, « For decades, Sudan has been in a state of war with Israel. You have… Israeli goods have been boycotted. There was no relationship. Today`s peace agreement will improve Israel`s security and end Sudan`s long isolation. In a telephone conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the President of the Sovereign Council of Sudan, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, and Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, Mr. Trump brought journalists into the Oval Office and said, « The State of Israel and the Republic of Sudan have agreed on peace. » Trump called the deal a « huge victory » on Twitter and said other countries would follow. It also issued a joint statement on behalf of the three countries. In Khartoum, a broad coalition formed against the idea of peace with Israel – including the leader of Sudan`s largest party – and pledged to fight the agreement. In August 2020, the U.S. Secretary of State traveled to several Arab League countries, including Sudan. [13] On 15 September 2020, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed the Abraham-Israel agreements, marking the first Arab country to sign a peace agreement with Israel since Jordan in 1994. Mauritania recognized Israel in 1999, but cut the gang ten years later.

[14] It was reported that Sudanese and Omans were also issued to sign agreements after the US elections. [15] [16] Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok thanked the President in a tweet that did not explicitly acknowledge the agreement with Israel.

Netanyahu stayed on the line while reporters continued to ask questions. One of them prompted the prime minister to think of Trump predicting that Iran would be included in a broader regional peace agreement arising from recent standardization agreements. The Sudanese government stressed that the agreement needed the approval of an elected parliament to enter into force and that it was only a provisional agreement. [26] The agreement comes just over a month after the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed the Abraham Accords at the White House, becoming the first Arab countries to normalize relations with Israel in decades. Egypt did so in 1979, and Jordan followed in 1994. « I think if a new agreement is offered… It`s the right thing to do. I think that will only happen if Iran faces strong opposition to its aggression, as you have, Mr President. If you are gentle with Iran, you will not get peace with Iran.

If you are strong against Iran and you are preventing it from reaching nuclear weapons, I think they could reach a better deal, » he added. Sudan hosted a flagship Arab League conference after the 1967 Six-Day War, in which eight Arab countries approved the « three no »: no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel and no negotiations.
