Sudan Annuls Israel Boycott Law

The Sovereign Council that rules Sudan has voted to annul the Israel boycott law that has been on the books since 1958.

The law abolished on Monday during a joint session between the council and the Sudanese cabinet had banned any diplomatic and economic ties with Israel, and punished such violations with 10 years in prison. During the meeting, the cabinet also reaffirmed its support for a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Sudan agreed to normalize relations with Israel in October, and signed on to the Abraham Accords with the United States in January after the Trump administration removed Sudan from its list of state sponsors of terrorism.

The bill annulling the boycott also will allow Sudanese citizens with relatives living in Israel to visit them. There are about 6,000 Sudanese living in Israel, The Associated Press reported.
