Sudanese delegation to travel Israel Friday or Saturday 

April 14, 2021 (KHARTOUM) – The first Sudanese delegation to visit Israel will arrive in Tel Aviv on Friday or Saturday to coincide with the celebration of National Day.

On Tuesday, Reuters unveiled that a Sudanese delegation will visit Israel next week for the first time after the normalization of bilateral relations under the Abraham Accords brokered by the Trump administration.

Government officials in Khartoum confirmed to Sudan Tribune the visit saying it would take place on Friday or Saturday and include representatives of the civil and military components.

“The first official visit to Israel will intentionally coincide with the National Day to symbolize recognition of the State of Israel,” said the Sudanese officials who requested anonymity.

The Minister of Justice, Nasr al-Din Abdal-Bari would be part of the Sudanese delegation, which will also include military, security and political officials, added the sources.

The military component of the transitional government was more enthusiastic about the normalization of relations with Israel.

Some political groups in the Forces for Freedom and Change voiced opposition to the contacts between the head of the Sovereign Council and the Israeli Prime Minister.

Abdel Fattah al-Burhan recently reaffirmed that his approach on this matter was guided by Sudan’s interest and the need to break the international isolation of the country.

Israel supported Sudan’ removal from the list of state sponsors of terrorism and pledged investment of transfer of agriculture technology to the east African nation.
