Sudanese FM downplays Israel ties, says no plans for Khartoum embassy

Sudan’s foreign minister downplays the country’s emerging ties with Israel, saying that there are currently no plans to establish an Israeli embassy in Khartoum.

In an interview with The National, 11 months after the announcement of normalization between the countries, Sudanese Foreign Minister Mariam al-Sadiq al-Mahdi says that there’s “not any sign of normalization with Israel.”

“There is no talk at any official level,” she says, adding that “abolishing a law on boycotting Israel does not mean that we consider opening an Israeli embassy in Khartoum.”
