Sudan close to officially joining normalization accords: Israeli media
Israeli media says Sudan is on its way to officially signing the normalization agreements with the Israeli occupation.
Sudan is on its way toward officially signing the normalization agreements with the Israeli occupation, more commonly known as the "Abraham Accords", claiming that this was another feat for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli media reported on Wednesday.
In response to a question about whether Sudan was on the way to joining the normalization agreements now and officially, Israeli KAN public broadcaster political commentator Gili Cohen said "yes", "it is expected that the matter will be official, and Sudan is on the way to officially join the normalization agreements."
"This issue was raised in talks between US State Secretary Antony Blinken here in Israel, and in previous meetings that American officials held with the political leadership in Israel, from Netanyahu to President Herzog, Foreign Minister Cohen, and other officials," Cohen explained.
"Israel and the United States are also interested in expanding the normalization agreements, but in this case, Sudan announced that it intended to join the agreement, though there was no official signature. That was obstructed by the lengthy negotiations with the United States and the lack of stability in Sudan," she stressed.
Israeli media underlined that it seemed that Sudan was "now on its way toward officially signing the Abraham Accords, and this is a message that Israel and the United States want to make use of."

The military leaders in charge in Sudan, currently undergoing various economic, security, and political crises, are counting on normalization with the Israeli occupation as a means of solving the issues ravaging the country. However, it is clear that the various calamities affecting the country are too deep and complex to be solved by a normalization agreement. Additionally, the enmity that the Sudanese people have for the Israeli occupation would render the political normalization agreement useless on the ground.
The normalization agreements originally took place in 2020, and normalized Israeli diplomacy with Morocco, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain, with the deal being signed with Sudan.
