Kamal Omar, a leader in the Popular Congress Party, said in a separate statement that Sudan's transitional government is not elected and therefore not authorized to normalize relations with Israel.
"This transitional government hijacked the Sudanese position to satisfy regional and international intelligence agencies," he said.
The three No's
Interestingly, Sudan has traditionally played a significant role in the pan-Arab policies. Sudan hosted a landmark Arab League conference in September 1967 after the 1967 Six-Day War where eight Arab countries approved the "three no's": no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, and no negotiations with Israel.
The Khartoum resolution also called for insistence on the rights of the Palestinian people in their own country.
The eight Arab countries attending the Khartoum summit included: Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait Yemen, Iraq and the host Sudan.
Tellingly, the six-day war ended with Israel's occupation of the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt, the West Bank of Jordan and the Golan Heights of Syria.
