Sudan provisionally plans to send a first official delegation to Israel next week to firm up bilateral ties that were established last year under US mediation, two sources told Reuters on Tuesday.
One of the sources, who could not be identified by name or nationality, said the Sudanese delegation would comprise security and intelligence officials.
The specific date for next week’s visit had yet to be finalized, the source added.
Sudanese and Israeli government spokesmen had no immediate comment.
Sudan joined the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Morocco in agreeing to move toward normal relations with Israel in the 2020 Abraham Accords deal brokered by the Trump administration. The Biden administration has pledged to pursue such outreach.
In a related measure, the Sudanese cabinet voted last week to abolish a 1958 law that bans establishing diplomatic and business relations with Israel.
