Sudan and the United States held talks on how the African country can advance Arab-Israeli peace, as well as the possibility of it being removed from the U.S. list of sponsors of terrorism, authorities said on Wednesday.

The meeting, held in the United Arab Emirates, involved “serious and frank talks” about “stability in the region,” according to Reuters.

The two parties also discussed preserving “the right of the Palestinian people to establish their state according to the vision of a two-state solution,” a ruling sovereign council statement said after the Sudanese delegation returned.

That delegation left for UAE on Sunday and was led by the head of the council, Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, according to the report. Sudan has been led by a military and civilian council since former dictator Omar al-Bashir was ousted from power in April 2019.

Sudan’s Foreign Ministry last month denied comments made by its own spokesman indicating that an agreement between his government and Israel might be in the works.
