Trump’s announcement was seized directly by Khartoum and Tel Aviv, and the first announced the normalization of its relations with Israel and “an end to the state of hostility between them,” according to what was stated in a tripartite statement issued by it and from Washington and Tel Aviv, transmitted by Sudanese official television, describing the agreement as “historic”. “The leaders agreed to start economic and trade relations,” the joint statement said. They also agreed, according to the statement, that “the delegations will meet in the coming weeks to negotiate cooperation agreements in those areas as well as in the field of agricultural technology, aviation, immigration issues, and others.” The statement indicated “determination to work together to build a better future and advance the cause of peace in the region.” He believed that “this historic agreement is a testament to the bold approach and vision of the four leaders,” referring to US President Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Sudanese Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok, and Sudanese Transitional Council Chairman Abdel Fattah al-Burhan.
In turn, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the normalization of relations with Sudan as “an exceptional change.” In a statement written in Hebrew, he said: “What an exceptional transformation! Today Khartoum says yes to peace with Israel, yes to recognition of Israel and yes to normalization with Israel, ”in a veiled reference facing the“ three nos ”issued by the Arab League summit in Khartoum, after the 1967 war, when Arab leaders adopted a resolution“ No reconciliation nor recognition Do not negotiate with the Hebrew state. Addressing Trump, Netanyahu said, “We are expanding the circle of peace so quickly thanks to your leadership.” He also added that “delegations from Sudan and Israel will meet soon to discuss cooperation in several areas, especially agriculture, trade and other important areas.”
The US President’s celebration of normalization between the two countries this time was deficient compared to the two previous normalization ceremonies, as journalists in the Oval Office attended a phone call between him and Netanyahu and Hamdok, and al-Burhan. However, Trump, who has been facing a decline in his popularity for some time, according to opinion polls, did not miss the opportunity without exaggerating the step he is taking, as he confirmed that “many, many” other agreements are coming, stressing that “Saudi Arabia will not fail in the peace process with Israel.” ». This came at a time when White House spokesman Jude Derry tweeted, on Twitter, saying: “The President (Trump) announced that Sudan and Israel agreed to normalize relations between them, in a new big step towards peace in the Middle East.” Also, the US President tweeted: “It is a huge victory for the United States and for peace in the world.” He added, “Sudan agreed to a peace and normalization agreement with Israel!” With the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, three countries in a few weeks. Other countries will follow ».
The White House announced that Trump will withdraw Sudan from the list of “states sponsoring terrorism”
Shortly before announcing the normalization of relations, the White House announced that Trump would withdraw Sudan from the list of “states sponsoring terrorism.” A statement issued by the White House said that the US President “informed Congress of his intention to officially back down from designating Sudan as a state sponsor of terrorism,” describing the matter as a “very important moment” for Sudan and for relations between Khartoum and Washington. The statement indicated that the transitional authorities in Sudan paid an amount of 335 million dollars as part of an agreement to compensate Americans, victims of attacks that occurred during President Omar al-Bashir’s thirty-year rule.
The American judiciary ruled on Sudan to pay these compensation, after the country was accused of supporting jihadists who blew up the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, killing 224 people and wounding about five thousand others. In this context, Hamdok’s office stated, in a statement, that the decision to remove Sudan from the US list of terrorism “opened the door wide for Sudan’s due return to the international community, the global financial and banking system, and regional and international investments.”
However, it is clear that the reasons that pushed Sudan to accept an agreement to normalize relations with Israel lie in the miserable economic situation it suffers, which is closely related to the sanctions imposed by the United States on it. With this in mind, the statement issued by Khartoum stated that the United States would assist Sudan in “reducing its debt burden”, including pushing forward discussions with its international partners “on debt forgiveness.” However, it is feared that this announcement will destabilize the political agreement under which the transitional government is governed, as opposition voices have risen since the path of normalization became clear. Among the most prominent opponents is the head of the Islamic Umma party, Sadiq al-Mahdi, who is considered one of the most prominent supporters of the government. He has threatened to withdraw his support for the government if normalization takes place.
