Sudan's Popular Resistance Front against the normalization of relations with Israel has condemned Khartoum's efforts to establish relations with Tel Aviv.

Iran PressAfrica: The movement includes 28 Sudanese groups and institutions that oppose any compromise with the Zionist regime.

The Sudan People's Congress party also announced that the attempt to normalize relations with the Zionist regime is contrary to the official arrangements to achieve a democratic transition and the establishment of people's rule and will not be successful, and its goal is to keep Sudan under military rule.

“It has been agreed to move forward towards the normalization of relations between with Israel,” Sudan’s foreign ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

Sudan had initially said in 2020 that it would sign on to the Abraham Accords normalization agreement. In January 2021, Sudan said that its then-justice minister Nasredeen Abdulbari had signed the accords during a visit by US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, though no documentation of this was ever presented.

The deal inked on Thursday reportedly will be signed later this year when there is a transfer of power from the military, which has run the country since the October 2021 coup led by Burhan, to a civilian government.
