The two countries then quickly ratified their respective agreements with Israel. Donald Trump sealed the deal Friday in a telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, his Sudanese counterpart Abdalla Hamdok and Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, head of Sudan`s Sovereign Council. A joint statement by the governments of Israel, Sudan and the United States stated that “the heads of state and government have agreed to normalize relations between Sudan and Israel and end the state of war between their nations”[25] and stated, “In addition, the leaders have agreed to establish economic and trade relations with an emphasis on agriculture.” The statement also proposed the possibility of further meetings and agreements: “The Heads of State and Government also agreed that delegations would meet in the coming weeks to negotiate cooperation agreements in these areas, in the areas of agricultural technology, aviation, immigration and other areas for the benefit of both peoples.” [22] The agreement between Israel and Sudan, announced on Friday, was a historic step forward, but the road to a formal peace treaty and the establishment of full diplomatic relations could be further complicated and time-consuming. 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.

U.S. President Donald Trump, who sought re-election on November 3, sealed the deal in a telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and Transitional Council chief Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, senior U.S. officials said. WASHINGTON – A pioneering agreement between Sudan and Israel on normalizing relations is likely to dissolve just over a month after President Trump`s announcement reveals a flaw in Middle East peace agreements that he and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have tried to cement as foreign policy broadcast rights. Delegations from different countries will meet in the coming weeks to negotiate cooperation agreements in these areas, as well as in the fields of agricultural technology, aviation, migration and other areas, he said. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the agreement was a “dramatic breakthrough for peace” and the beginning of a “new era.” The agreement between Israel and Sudan is an agreement that took place on 23 October 2020, during which Israel and Sudan agreed on a normalization of relations. It is not clear that the agreement between the two nations has full diplomatic relations.
