The head of the Sudanese Sovereignty Council, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, announced that the agreement with Israel will be submitted to the country’s legislative apparatus for a decision, at a time when political forces and broad Sudanese factions declared their welcome to the inauguration of relations between Khartoum and Tel Aviv.
Al-Burhan said in a TV interview: Because we want to change the world’s view of Sudan, we have ended the state of hostility with everyone, considering that the hostile behavior of the former regime caused Sudan to be placed on the list of terrorism.
He also indicated that the step of the agreement with Israel came after consultations with all Sudanese parties, pointing out that the national interest of Sudan must take precedence over any other interest. Al-Burhan confirmed that all the concluded agreements will be submitted to the legislative body in Sudan.
In addition, broad Sudanese political forces and spectrums welcomed the inauguration of relations between Khartoum and Tel Aviv, and considered it a step to open up to the outside world.
Justice Minister Nasreddin Abdul-Bari defended the agreement and considered it biased in favor of Sudan’s interests, while removing confusion over the constitutionality of the move. Abdul-Bari said in a press statement that the current transitional government is supported by the majority of Sudanese, backed by the military, and led by a prime minister who has the support of no prime minister in the history of Sudan, and has the political ability to make major decisions, because it is not a traditional transitional government. It is a foundational government. He affirmed that the transitional government is empowered by the ruling constitutional document to administer foreign policy in a balanced and independent manner, and in accordance with the interests of the Sudanese.

Revolutionary efforts to pursue a balanced foreign policy that is open to the world.
Meanwhile, the Sudanese Congress Party considered the beginning of contacts between Sudan and Israel an event that requires redefining our foreign relations to be based on the basis of national interest, and making them above all considerations.
