An Israeli delegation will visit Khartoum in the coming days, following last month’s announced move toward normalization between the Zionist entity and Sudan, Israeli media reported.
The small delegation will focus on security cooperation between the two countries, The Jerusalem Post said citing a cabinet source said Sunday.
A larger delegation that will focus on economic issues, including water and agriculture, is expected to depart in the coming weeks, the source added.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s adviser on the Arab world, a Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) operative identified as “Maoz,” will lead this week’s defense-focused delegation, the Israeli daily reported.
Maoz, Netanyahu’s point man on Sudan, flew to Khartoum the day before the announced normalization to work out the final details.
Last month, Sudan and the Israeli regime announced they would establish diplomatic ties. The move came in conjunction with the US removing Sudan from its list of state sponsors of terrorism.
