(NEWS) South Sudan State Prepared To Establish Relations With Israel

"A new state in South Sudan would establish relations with Israel should the Jewish state recognize its independence, a senior official in the semi-autonomous region said.

In three months’ time, the people of South will decide on whether they wish declare independence from the North or stay part of united Sudan. Most observers expect an overwhelming vote in favor of secession.

Southern Sudan Information Minister Barnaba Marial Benjamin told the Dubai based Al-Khaleej newspaper that the new state 'is capable of establishing with all world countries' in response to question about future links with Israel.

'The independent South will establish relations with all world countries and will not antagonize anyone.....Any state that recognize us we will have relations with. Just like there are diplomatic relations to some Arab states with Israel then why not us?' Benjamin added.

Sudan has no diplomatic relations with Israel and remains hostile to the Jewish state on the grounds that it is occupying Arab lands.

Israel is the house for several hundreds Sudanese refugees who fled through the Egyptian borders." (source)
