President Donald Trump announced that Sudan agreed on Friday 23 October 2020 to be the last Arab country to recognize Israel, in a new diplomatic coup in the days leading up to the US elections.
The UAE and Bahrain signed an agreement with the White House last month to normalize relations with Israel, but Sudan can be said to be more important as an Arab country that fought Israel.
"We are expanding their circle of peace so rapidly with your leadership," Netanyahu was heard saying.
Trump said: "There are many, many more coming."
"Today represents a momentous step forward in the United States-Sudan bilateral relationship and marks a pivotal turning point for Sudan," a White House statement said.
