Netanyahu met the President of the Sudanese Council of Sovereignty
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a tweet he discussed the normalization of relations during the meeting with senior Sudanese politicians in Uganda.
Netanyahu affirmed that he met the President of the Sudanese Council of Sovereignty, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan during his visit in the country on Monday. The meeting marks a major change in relations between the two countries.
Secretary of the Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee and main Palestinian negotiator, Saeb Erekat, condemned the meeting in Uganda, describing it as “a stab in the back”.
“This meeting is a stab behind the Palestinian people and a blatant departure from the Arab peace initiative at a time when the administration of American President Donald Trump and the Israeli prime minister are trying to liquidate the Palestinian issue”. Commented Erekat.
On January 28 US President Donald Trump announced what he called “the deal of the century” between Israel and Palestine.
The ‘Vision for Peace, Prosperity and a Brighter Future’ de facto legalize Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Israel also would be allowed to annex around 30 percent of the territories in the West Bank.
According to UN, the Palestinian statelet envisioned by the American plan would be scattered archipelagos of non-contiguous territory completely surrounded by Israel, with no external borders, no control over its airspace, no right to a military to defend its security, no geographic basis for a viable economy, no freedom of movement and with no ability to complain to international judicial forums against Israel or the United States
