General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan

Sudan's Military Ruler: If I'm Invited, I'll Go to Israel

Sudan’s ruling military general, Gen. Abdel-Fattah Burhan, said in an interview on Friday, September 23, that he would visit Israel if he were to receive an invitation. Asked if as Sudan’s leader, he would visit Israel, Burhan replied, “The basis of relations is reconciliation. Therefore, if an invitation was presented and there is the means for this, I will go.”

Sudan became the third Arab country to normalize ties with Israel as part of the Abraham Accords brokered by the Trump Administration in October of 2020, following the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

The agreement between Israel and Sudan was announced days after then-US President Donald Trump officially removed Sudan from the list of nations that sponsor and finance terrorism. However, despite the agreement, no steps for full normalization between Israel and Sudan have taken place as of yet, and the only known contacts between the sides have been in the form of reports of Israeli delegations secretly visiting Sudan.

Burhan mounted a military coup nearly a year ago, which triggered widespread international condemnation and punitive measures, including crucial aid cuts by Western governments pending the resumption of the transition to civilian rule. (INN / VFI News)
