Another Islamic country to recognise Israel in exchange for $3 billion grant
Sudan is holding decisive meeting with United States (US) and United Arab Emirates (UAE) to normalize relations with Israel.
According to details, another Islamic country Sudan is asking for billions in economic assistance in return for agreement with Israel. Reportedly, if all demands are met, an announcement is expected in upcoming days.
Sudan is among those countries that are possibly inking a deal to normalize ties with Israel, following the diplomatic move made by the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain on Tuesday.
Sudan is seeking a massive economic support package including oil and wheat shipments worth $1.2 billion to deal with recent deadly floods, a $2 billion grant to cope with country’s financial crisis and a commitment of economic assistance from UAE and US over the next three years.
The talks with Sudan are lead by Gen. Miguel Correa of White House National Security Council’s senior director for the Gulf and North Africa and Tahnoon Bin Zayed who is serving as UAE’s national security adviser.
Israel had always wished to normalize relations with Sudan due to its important geographic location in the region.
Numerous Arab countries, including Morocco, Sudan and Oman, have been termed as potential candidates to follow the lead of UAE and Bahrain in willing to sign deals with Israel.
