Israel sent a delegation to Sudan on Monday for talks on expanding economic and humanitarian cooperation, Reuters reported.

According to the report, a source confirmed that the delegation met with members of the U.S. embassy in Khartoum and a “range of figures” from the Sudanese leadership, but said that the discussion did not deal with a more comprehensive peace treaty between Israel and Sudan.

Instead, it apparently revolved around ways in which Israel could help improve Sudan’s agriculture, food security, water supplies and health care.
