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.

U.S. President Donald Trump announced on Oct. 23 that Sudan had agreed to normalize ties with Israel. His announcement came mere weeks after the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed the U.S.-brokered Abraham Accords with Israel at the White House on Sept. 15.
