Sudan to finalise Abraham Accords with Israel
February 3, 2023 - Khartoum is set to sign a formal peace deal with Israel in a highly symbolic move - the city was the venue for the 1967 Arab League declaration that denied recognition of the Jewish state.
Israel and Sudan will sign an “historic peace agreement” in Washington in a few months' time, Israel's foreign minister announced, with Sudan becoming the latest Arab League country to establish such ties.
Since 2020, when the Abraham Accords were signed, there are now six Arab League countries with formal relations with Israel, plus a number that engage in informal or covert co-operation. Trade between Israel and the Abraham Accords countries now amounts to almost $3.5 billion, the majority with the United Arab Emirates.
