Sudan cabinet votes to abolish Israel boycott law

Sudan’s cabinet has voted to repeal a 1958 law that forbade diplomatic and business relations with Israel, it said in a statement.

Tuesday’s decision still needs the approval of a joint meeting of Sudan’s sovereign council and cabinet, which serves as Sudan’s interim legislative body.

Sudan last year signed up to the Abraham Accords on regional reconciliation with Israel sponsored by the US administration of then-president Donald Trump, and Israeli officials have visited Sudan.
