Sudan officially signs Abraham Accords, agrees to normalise ties with Israel

Agreeing to normalise ties with Israel, Sudan has now officially signed the Abraham Accords, a move that paves way for Sudan to relieve its massive debt to the World Bank.

The historic signing of the peace accord took place at the U.S embassy in Khartoum on January 6, where Sudanese Minister of Justice Nasereldin Abdelbari signed on behalf of Khartoum while U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin signed on behalf of Washington.

“Khartoum welcomes the rapprochement and the diplomatic ties between Sudan and Israel that Sudan will boost for its own benefit and for other countries in the region,” said Abdelbari, adding that Khartoum appreciates the historical visit by Mnuchin and further hopes to deepen the ties between Sudan and the United States.

The move will further benefit Sudan as it will remove the country from U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism.
