Israel, Sudan Agree to Normalize Ties in U.S.-Brokered Deal
TEL AVIV—Israel and Sudan agreed to normalize ties in a U.S.-brokered deal on Friday, the White House said, ending decades of hostility as one of Africa’s largest countries joined a broader diplomatic realignment in the Middle East.
The deal helps Sudan emerge from international isolation after the U.S. sanctioned it in the 1990s for harboring al Qaeda’s then-leader, Osama bin Laden, and aiding terrorist groups.
The agreement was announced at the White House by President Trump, who spoke on a conference call to leaders of the two countries and called the deal “peace in the Middle East without bloodshed.”
“The State of Israel and the Republic of Sudan have agreed to make peace,” Mr. Trump said. “This is an incredible deal for Israel and Sudan.”
The countries will soon meet to negotiate cooperation agreements in agriculture, technology, aviation, migration and other critical areas, Mr. Trump said.
