Israel’s peace with Sudan was announced just over a month after Israel, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain signed historic peace agreements at the White House, the first to be signed between Israel and an Arab country in 25 years.

Israel welcomed Sudan’s signing of the Abraham Accords, the country’s latest step towards its normalization of ties with the Jewish state.
Sudan and the US signed on Wednesday the declaration of the Abraham Accords. Sudan was represented by the Minister of Justice Dr. Nasreddin Abdel-Bari, and the US Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin signed for the US during his visit to Khartoum.
Israeli Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi welcomed Sudan’s signing of the Abraham Accords as “an important step in advancing regional normalization agreements in the Middle East.”
He thanked the US administration for its “constant efforts to promote peace and stability throughout the Middle East.”
“I hope that this agreement will soon bring progress in the dialogue and normalization between Israel and Sudan and promote the development of relations between our two countries,” he stated.
Israel and Sudan announced the normalization of ties in October 2020.
The establishment of formal relations between the countries has great potential for both in a variety of areas including security, economy, energy, agriculture and water.
Israel’s peace with Sudan was announced just over a month after Israel, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain signed a historic peace agreement at the White House on September 15, the first agreement to be signed between Israel and an Arab country in 25 years.
The UAE was the first major Arab state to recognize Israel since the Israel-Jordan Peace Treaty was signed in October 1994.
Announced on August 13, the Abraham Accords is the first between a Gulf state and Israel and is expected to lead to similar agreements with other Arab countries, possibly Oman or Saudi Arabia.
Morocco joined the Abraham Accords in December.
