MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Israel and Sudan agreed Thursday to move forward with the normalization process and formalize their relationship once the North African nation transitions to civilian rule.
The pact was made during a one-day visit of Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen to Khartoum, which is the first official trip to the Sudanese capital by a top Israeli diplomat. He met with Gen. Abdel-Fattah Al-Burhan, the head of Sudan's Transitional Sovereign Council.
"During the visit, which was made with the consent of the US, the parties finalized the text of the agreement," the Israeli foreign ministry said.
"The signing ceremony is expected to take place after the transfer of power in Sudan to a civilian government."
