Trump’s diplomacy is making waves of potential peace across the Middle East as a new conditional agreement has been negotiated between Sudan and Israel, who have been in a state of war for decades. The President called the leaders of Israel and Sudan today as the announcement was made, and invited the press attend. So the count is: Bahrain, UAE, Kosovo/Serbia, and now Sudan. There is growing hope for peace, although there is a long way to go. The President said that more countries will follow.

The deal included the willingness of Sudan to pay compensation to the victims of terrorism from the 1998 attacks on US Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. They have agreed to pay $335 Million, since Osama bin Laden was living in Sudan at the time of the attacks. In exchange, as soon as the money is transferred, the President will remove them from the list of terrorist nations. His method of diplomacy is working.
Sudan has been in a dire economic situation due to their terror status. This will be a welcome change, as it allows investment in the nation.
The removal of the terror designation opens the door for Sudan to get international loans and aid needed to revive its battered economy and rescue the country’s transition to democracy.
Sudan is on a fragile path to democracy after a popular uprising last year led the military to overthrow the longtime autocrat, Omar al-Bashir. A military-civilian government rules the country, with elections possible in late 2022.
Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok thanked Trump for signing the executive order to remove Sudan from the terrorism list and said in a statement that he hoped to complete the process in a “timely manner.”
The normalization agreement had been in the works for some time but was finalized when Trump’s Mideast peace team, led by Jared Kushner and Avi Berkowitz, visited the region earlier this week to mark the first commercial flight between Israel and Bahrain and then went on to the United Arab Emirates, according to U.S. officials.
Is there a game plan? If these countries can be united against Iran, peace is much more likely. Hamas, Hezbollah, and Iran have been the instigators of death across the Middle East, and particularly against Israel. As more nations follow suit with Trump’s diplomacy, they will lose their ability to veto peace.
“This is one of the great days in the history of Sudan.” President Trump
