Sudan announced on Sunday that it will hold talks with Israel in the coming weeks on a number of issues.

The Sudanese Foreign Ministry said that delegations from each country would negotiate deals for agriculture, aviation, trade and migration, Reuters reported.

According to the report, Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok wants the parliament in Khartoum, which has not yet been formed, to approve formal normalization with Israel, meaning the process may not be a quick one.

Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted on Sunday that Israel will be “sending $5 million worth of wheat immediately to our new friends in Sudan.”

Major oppositionist factions in Sudan have rejected the peace deal between Israel and the transitional government in Khartoum, announced on Friday by U.S. President Donald Trump, who helped broker the agreement.
