Sudan could be next to normalise ties with Israel, report says

Deal would come after UAE and Bahrain strike agreements


Sudan is in talks to potentially establish diplomatic relations with Israel, according to Axios. 

US, Emirati and Sudanese officials will meet in Abu Dhabi on Monday and an agreement could be reached within days, which would make Sudan the third country to normalise ties with Israel in recent weeks, the news website reported.

Sudan is asking for economic and humanitarian aid and to be removed from the US State Department’s list of state sponsors of terrorism, Axios reported. 

The US and UAE would also commit to providing economic aid to Sudan over the next three years as part of the agreement being considered.

Sudan would be required to pay compensation to the families of US victims killed in terror attacks on embassies in Africa in 1998 and a US naval destroyer in 2000, according to the report. 

The country has been led by a transitional government since former president Omar al-Bashir, who ruled for three decades, was ousted last year.

Sudan, which has been rocked by an economic crisis, declared a state of emergency earlier this month.
