Israel, Sudan Set Up Normalization Teams

(Jerusalem Post) Lahav Harkov - Israeli officials said Tuesday that both Israel and Sudan are "currently setting up teams to work on how to advance cooperation between the countries and establish diplomatic relations." Sudan sees normalization with Israel as a way to improve ties with the U.S., which has classified the country as a state sponsor of terrorism since 1993. Sudan's notorious dictator Omar al-Bashir was toppled by protests last year. On Tuesday, Sudan's leader, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, said the meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was "to preserve and maintain Sudanese national security and achieve the supreme interests of the Sudanese people." AP reported that the UAE had organized Monday's meeting between Netanyahu and al-Burhan. Saudi Arabian and Egyptian officials were also informed about it.
