An Intelligence Visit To Sudan Announced By Israel Hid By Khartoum
Israeli occupation media announced that the Minister of Intelligence in the Israeli occupation state, Eli Cohen, visited Sudan for the first time on Monday, months after the signing of the normalization agreement between Khartoum and Tel Aviv, under the outgoing US President Donald Trump who pressured Sudan to accept normalization in order to remove it from the list of countries sponsoring terrorism.
The office of the Israeli Minister of Intelligence issued a statement saying that he met with the Sudanese Defense Minister Yassin Ibrahim, and they signed a memorandum of comprehensive cooperation in the security, political and economic fields.
Commentary of the Occupying Power on the visit
After his return from Khartoum, the Minister of Intelligence of the Israeli occupation state said that his meetings with officials in Sudan seemed very fruitful, hoping that it would lay the foundations for joint cooperation between the two countries, and support the stability of the region after the Arab-Israeli state of peace which is prevailing every day.
He also said that officials in Khartoum discussed him in three plans, all of which were economic plans, and they spoke about securing the borders jointly.
The Israeli Ministry of Intelligence said that the members of the delegation who participated in the visit had met during their visit with Abdel Fattah Burhan, Chairman of the Sudanese Sovereignty Council, and Minister of Defense Yassin Ibrahim, and the ministry issued a statement saying that “the Sudanese authorities have informed the Israeli delegation of the progress on the abolition of the boycott law of Israel, and amending the law of imprisoning Sudanese immigrants, who travel to Israel, and those who return to Sudan. “
No Comment from Sudan
The Sudanese government did not comment on the Israeli media news or the statement issued by the Israeli Minister of Intelligence and completely ignored the news of the visit.
The government of Sudan had received a delegation from the Israeli occupation state last November, to coordinate relations between the two countries, and arranging for the signing of the normalization agreement after the Emirates, Bahrain and Morocco, despite several demonstrations by the Sudanese people who reject the agreement.
Imminent Agreement in Washington
According to Hebrew and Arab media outlets, the Israeli occupation state announced last Wednesday that it would complete a normalized diplomatic agreement between the two countries at a signing ceremony in Washington, under the auspices of the White House, within three months from now at the most.
Commenting on this statement; the Sudanese government said that the normalization agreement could not become effective until after the transitional legislative council approves it, which has not been formed yet.
In 1967, Sudan hosted the three “No” conference against normalization with the Israeli occupation state, when the Arab League, in its meeting in Khartoum, swore that “there is no peace with the Israeli occupation state, no recognition of Israel, and no negotiations with it.”
In 1948 and 1967, Sudan fought a war against the Israeli occupation, and it was one of the first countries to support the rejection of the occupation, but with tthe Transitional Sovereignty Council taking over which enabled it to take over, the political dynamics in Sudan changed, as Sudan’s generals supported the normalization of relations with the Israeli occupation state, claiming that this is the only way to lift the US sanctions on their country, and to open the door for foreign economic aid to Khartoum, which is in dire need for it, as they put it.
