The Greater Miami Jewish Federation and its Jewish Community Relations Council enthusiastically welcome the normalization agreement between Israel and Sudan announced today, October 23, 2020. This agreement, the third in as many months, after similar breakthroughs with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, is the latest sign of a diplomatic realignment in the Middle East. It is particularly significant given the decades-long history of hostility between the two countries.
In a joint statement released by the United States, the Republic of Sudan and the State of Israel, the leaders of the three countries agreed to the establishment of ties between Sudan and Israel and the beginning of economic and trade relations with an initial focus on agriculture and aviation. We applaud President Donald Trump, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Sudanese Sovereign Council Chairman General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok for this historic move.
It is our fervent hope for additional countries to normalize relations with Israel, with the promise of long lasting peace, prosperity and security throughout the Middle East and Africa.
