Sudan and Kuwait are set to become the next Muslim-majority countries to normalize ties with Israel, according to various Israeli media outlets.

In reference to a report regarding Sudan, the normalization will be a priority on the agenda at an Abu Dhabi meeting set for this week between Sudanese, American, and Emirati officials.

Likewise, U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday that Kuwait would most likely be the next Persian Gulf country to normalize ties with Israel.

Trump predicted this at a White House press briefing, hours after meeting with Sheikh Nasser Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah, the son of Kuwait’s ruling emir.

The Kuwaitis “are very excited that we signed the first two countries and I think they will end up fairly quickly being a part of it,” Trump said, referring to the Gulf nations of Bahrain and the UAE, who signed a historic normalization agreement with Israel earlier this week at the White House.

Trump’s comments come following normalization of relations between the UAE, Bahrain, and Israel, which took place at the White House last week.

Speaking after U.S. President Donald Trump ahead of the agreement, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu expressed that he is “lining up more countries” to sign peace agreements with Israel.

Trump also added: “Nobody thought this would happen, and not only is it happening, it is happening rather easily.”

Last month, the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo flew from Tel Aviv (Israel’s internationally recognized capital) to Khartoum, Sudan, onboard the first direct flight between the two countries, fueling a possible normalization.

  • Trump administration is twisting arm very hard to all the Muslim countries to accept Isreal. US developed such a global system that is almost impossible for the courtly to survive with US sanctions, UN and FATF black listing, IMF, WB loan. They have so many tools for arm twisting.
