In a strong statement today, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi expressed his disapproval of certain Muslim countries' decision to normalize relations with the Tel Aviv regime. President Raisi argued that such actions contradict the inherent nature of these nations.

Highlighting the implications of this normalization, President Raisi stated, "If these countries had severed ties with the Zionists, we would not witness the ongoing attacks and bombings perpetrated against the oppressed and Muslim people of Gaza."

Iran and Sudan Reopen Embassies, Restore Diplomatic Relations After Seven-Year Hiatus

Iran and Sudan have taken a momentous step towards strengthening their political, economic, and cultural ties. Citing the countries' capacities and determination, it has been announced that both nations have exchanged ambassadors and reopened their respective embassies in Tehran and Khartoum. This crucial move sets the stage for an enhanced relationship between Iran and Sudan.

This milestone comes after a landmark agreement was reached in October 2023, marking the restoration of diplomatic relations between the two countries. The decision to restore ties was prompted by Iran and Saudi Arabia's signing of a China-brokered agreement in March 2023, signaling a resumption of their own severed relations after seven years.

The genesis of this diplomatic breakthrough can be traced back to 2016 when Riyadh closed its diplomatic missions in Tehran. The closure followed violent protests instigated by demonstrators incensed by the execution of prominent Shia cleric Nimr Baqir al-Nimr by Saudi authorities.

Expressing his country's eagerness to rebuild its political and diplomatic relations with Iran, the Sudanese foreign minister emphasized the importance of this restoration. This renewed partnership holds great potential for further collaboration and cooperation between Iran and Sudan.
