JERUSALEM– President Trump said Friday that Sudan has agreed to normalize relations with Israel, although details such as the terms and timing remain scant.

If Sudan were to establish ties with the Jewish state set aside decades of hostility, it would become the third Arab country in recent weeks to do so, following the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

The announcement came shortly after the White House said it has notified Congress that Trump intends to remove Sudan from the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hailed the development, saying, “Today we announce another dramatic breakthrough for peace, another Arab country joining the peace circle, and this time normalization between Israel and Sudan.
