Sudan’s cabinet confirms it abolished Israel boycott law

Sudan’s cabinet approves a bill to abolish a 1958 law boycotting Israel, after Khartoum and the Jewish state struck a deal to normalize ties.

“The Council of Ministers has approved a bill (repealing the 1958 boycott of Israel law) for the year 2021,” the cabinet says in a statement.

The former 1958 law was in line with the policies of Arab nations at the time towards Israel.
