(JNS) Sudan announced on Sunday, October 25, that it will hold talks with Israel in the coming weeks on a number of issues. The Sudanese Foreign Ministry said that delegations from each country would negotiate deals for agriculture, aviation, trade and migration, Reuters reported.

According to the report, Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok wants the parliament in Khartoum, which has not yet been formed, to approve formal normalization with Israel, meaning the process may not be a quick one.

Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted that Israel will be “sending $5 million worth of wheat immediately to our new friends in Sudan.”
