The accord is the fruit of efforts by the transitional civilian-majority government — which took power after the April 2019 ouster of president Omar al-Bashir — to forge closer ties with the US. Alongside it was an aid agreement promising $1 billion (€810 million) annual World Bank financing for Sudan.
"We congratulate the civilian-led transitional government on its signature today of the Abraham Accords Declaration, which will help further Sudan on its transformative path to stability, security, and economic opportunity," the US Embassy in Khartoum said on Twitter.
"The agreement allows Sudan, Israel, and other signers of the Abraham Accords to build mutual trust and increase cooperation in the region."
"This is a very, very significant agreement. It would have a tremendous impact on the people of Israel and the people of Sudan as they continue to work together on cultural and economic opportunities and trade,'' Mnuchin said.
At the signing ceremony, Sudan's justice minister Nasr Abdelbari heralded the agreement as an "important step."
"It confirms our belief that peace strengthens relations and interests between people," Abdelbari said in a video broadcast by the state-run SUNA news agency.
