Sudan and Israel will discuss agreements to cooperate on trade and migration issues, the Sudanese foreign ministry stated, signalling steps to implement a normalisation pact after decades of hostilities.
Israel for its part said it will send wheat worth $5 million to “our new friends of Sudan”, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office tweeted.
The U.S.-brokered accord made Khartoum the third Arab government after the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain to establish relations with Israel in the last two months, and only the fifth since 1948.
But prominent political factions in Sudan have rejected the accord. Some Sudanese officials have said it should be approved by a transitional parliament that has yet to be formed over a year after mass unrest ousted Islamist autocrat Omar al-Bashir.
