Pompeo hopes Sudan will quickly recognize Israel

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says he hopes Sudan will soon recognize Israel as Washington moved to remove the Arab country as a state sponsor of terrorism.

“We continue to work to make the case to every country to recognize Israel,” Pompeo tells reporters.

“We are working diligently with them to make the case for why that’s in the Sudanese government’s best interest to make that sovereign decision. We hope that they’ll do that, and we hope that they’ll do that quickly.”
