President Announces Normalization of Sudan and Israel Relations

The third Arab nation to agree to diplomatic, economic, and trade ties with Israel.

President Trump announced late last week, “The State of Israel and the Republic of Sudan have agreed to make peace.” Sudan is the third Arab nation to enter into an agreement to normalize relations with Israel after the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed the Abraham Accords just last month.

Last year in a desire for democracy, the Sudanese removed Omar al-Bashir from power, after nearly 30 years under his dictatorship. They now have a transitional government.

As part of the deal brokered by the U.S., the State Department has removed Sudan from their list of state sponsors of terrorism after that nation agreed to compensate American victims of terror and their families. The State Department announced that humanitarian aid will be sent to Sudan in response to its humanitarian crisis.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For U.S. officials as peace deals continue to be negotiated with the Arab nations.
  • That God will accomplish His will for Israel and the Middle East through the U.S.
  • For President Trump as his administration cultivates allies and strengthens relationships around the globe.
