[Ed. – Credit where it’s due. None of this would be happening under the leadership of any other U.S. political leader.  Accepting the deal for Sudan is an interim governing body the Sovereignty Council, which took over when the previous dictator, Omar al-Bashir, was removed from power.  Sudan has agreed to pay reparations to Americans who were injured by Al Qaeda terrorism when Osama bin Ladin was operating from their country, and the U.S. in turn is lifting sanctions.]

Israel and Sudan have agreed to work towards normalising relations in a deal brokered by the US that would make Sudan the third Arab country to set aside hostilities with Israel in the past two months.

Donald Trump sealed the agreement in a phone call on Friday with the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, his Sudanese counterpart, Abdalla Hamdok, and Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the head of Sudan’s transitional military council.
