Following the implementation of the Abraham Accords in 2020, the first Sudanese delegation is expected to arrive in Israel next week.

The first Sudanese delegation to visit Israel is set to arrive sometime next week, months after signing the Middle-East-altering Abraham Accords brokered by the previous White House administration. The northeast African country agreed to normalize its ties with the Jewish State back in October 2020 and officially signed on to the agreement in January.

In exchange for Sudan agreeing to normalize its ties with Israel, the United States offered several incentives, including removal from the terror watchlist, financial forgiveness, and more.

According to an anonymous source cited by Reuters, the delegation going to the Holy Land next week will consist of several officials from the intelligence and security sectors of the government.

Other countries included in the Accords are the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, and Morocco. As a result of the Accords, other countries in the region have either normalized their ties with or at least chosen to recognize Israel formally.
