Sudan And Israel Agree To Normalize Relations
10-23-20, NPR -- Sudan has been desperately trying to get out from under U.S. sanctions tied to the terror list, taking steps such as settling claims related to the bombing of the USS Cole 20 years ago and agreeing to payments over the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Nairobi and Tanzania. They recently agreed to pay $335 million into a fund U.S. terrorism victims and their families. President Trump recently announced, "Once deposited, I will lift Sudan from the State Sponsors of Terrorism list."
A joint statement from USA, Israel & Sudan:
"U.S., Israel and Sudan today discussed Sudan's historic progress toward democracy and opportunities to advance peace in the region. It adds that the historic shift will bolster regional security and open new opportunities for people in Sudan and Israel as well as their neighbors."
