Sudan’s sovereign council head confirms meeting Israeli PM in Uganda

Khartoum (Reuters) – The head of Sudan’s sovereign council on Tuesday confirmed that he held a meeting with the Israeli prime minister in Uganda on Monday.

Khartoum’s position towards the Palestinian issue and the right of Palestinians to set up their independent state “remained and will remain firm”, said Burhan.
