Sudan Joins the Club: “Israeli” Diplomat Met Sudanese Officials, Offered Aid to Renew Ties
Although Sudan has no official ties with the Zionist entity, a senior “Israeli” diplomat met Sudanese officials in a secret meeting in Istanbul last year, a report revealed.
During the visit, they discussed possible “Israeli” aid to the northeast African country in exchange for the renewal of ties or establishment of full diplomatic relations between the two sides.
“Israel’s” Channel 10 news reported Tuesday that the clandestine meeting was led by a special envoy from the Zionist Foreign Ministry who met with a team of senior Sudanese representatives, including former intelligence chief Mohamed Atta.
The channel quoted a source familiar with the meeting as saying that the delegations discussed “the warming of relations and possible ‘Israeli’ aid to Sudan in the fields of medicine, agriculture and the economy.”
Relatively, Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was aware of the meeting, which came as part of his concentrated efforts to forge stronger ties with Africa.
The report of diplomatic contacts between the Zionist regime and Sudan, which do not have any official bilateral relations, came on the heels of a historic visit to the occupation entity by Chadian President Idriss Déby -- the first ever by a leader of the Muslim West Africa nation.
Netanyahu announced that he would “soon” make a reciprocal visit to Chad to formally re-establish diplomatic relations with the country nearly half a century after they were severed.
Déby told i24NEWS in an exclusive interview on Monday that the renewal of relations with “Israel” had been the explicit purpose of his visit, and affirmed that ties would be re-established “in the coming weeks”.
Déby’s visit, according to a report by Channel 10 news on Sunday, was meant to lay the groundwork for establishing normalized relations with other Muslim-majority African nations including Sudan, Mali and Niger -- reportedly driven in part by the Zionist entity’s desire to slash air travel time to Latin America.
On Monday, the leader of Sudan's ruling National Congress Party Abdel-Sakhi Abbas denied that his country would follow Chad and normalize ties with “Israel” saying Sudan's position "is fundamentally linked to the Palestinian cause.”
