Sudan repeals law abolishing the boycott of Israel

The Cabinet of Sudan voted for the abolition of a 1958 law that called for a boycott of Israel.  The move still needs the approval of a joint meeting of Sudan’s Sovereign Council and cabinet, which serves as Sudan’s interim legislative body, to come into effect, the cabinet said. 

“The council of ministers approved a bill repealing the 1958 boycott of Israel law,” the cabinet said in a statement. 

The statement also emphasised “Sudan’s firm position on the establishment of a Palestinian state within the framework of a two-state solution”.
