Sudan wants to sign its normalization deal with Israel at the White House, according to Axios. The report says Israel favors the arrangement.
“There is no rush. We think it is a good idea to sign this agreement in Washington with the support of the Biden administration. It is important for the Sudanese, and it will strengthen the agreement,” an Israeli official is quoted saying.
Sudan has yet to respond officially to Israel’s proposal on the establishment of ties, according to the report. When pressed to sign, the head of Sudan’s governing council, Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, said he wants the new US administration to back the agreement and laid out his demand for a Washington ceremony, it says.
