Sudan says it has signed the “Abraham Accords” with the US, paving the way for normalization of ties with Israel.

The move came during Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s visit to Khartoum, as he became the first senior American official to land there since President Donald Trump’s administration removed the African country from the list of state sponsors of terrorism.
