Sudanese political activist and deputy chief of staff Amjad Farid stated that they don’t have any intention to be in a state of war with countries.

Normalizing things with Israel still remains a complicated issue as it has been ongoing since ages related to political and social concerns.

Nevertheless, recently senior officials from the military, stated they are looking for normalizing things with Israel, significantly helping to lift the if it helped lift the stigma of the United States’ terrorism designation.

Sudan had suffered dictatorship for 30 years and had left a bad taste for the country. Now it is trying to progress as well as normalize things with other countries including Israel, said the Sovereign Council, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Gabir.

Officials said an economic compensation package, an allurement to renew attention of Israel, could drive the country an essential financial aid if it is extensive enough.

Others have also cautioned the country that widespread resentment toward Israel remains high within because a hurried compromise on Israel 

could cause new help to the Islamist forces, which had decreased marginally after the dispossession of Mr. al-Bashir.

On Thursday, Jeffrey Feltman, of the Brookings Institution and Payton Knopf, of the United States Institute of Peace, said there is a history of 1983 which should not be repeated. The Israeli-Lebanese peace agreement that was signed by a Lebanese government unaccompanied by public legitimacy which failed in less than a year.  

The U.S aims to influence Arab countries to normalize connections with Israel. The United States is offering capital aid and assurances to entice Sudan to acknowledge Israel before the American election in November, while Saudi Arabia is still far fetched, as stated by officials on Saturday.

Israel was a top mover in the attempt to make Sudan involved in the list of states funding terrorism, primarily because of its close-knit link to the militant Islamist movement Hamas, which dominates Gaza and is opposed to Israel’s presence, and Iran.
