"There is no reason to continue hostility between Sudan and Israel", the spokesman, Haidar Badawi, was quoted as saying. Sadiq noted that both countries "will gain from a peace agreement", adding, "We look at an agreement of this kind through the interests of Sudan without sacrificing our values and principles".

Both Israel and Sudan would benefit from such an agreement, the spokesman said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Transportation Minister Miri Regev tour Ben-Gurion Airport and are briefed on preparations for the resumption of flights, 20 km (12 mi) southeast of Tel Aviv, Israel. "We will do everything necessary to make this vision a reality".

The neighbourhood committees say they want to see the long-delayed formation of a transitional legislature, the reorganisation of the civilian Forces of Freedom and Change coalition, which agreed the power-sharing agreement, and a civilian takeover of military-run companies. "I think that soon more countries will sign a peace agreement and eventually the Palestinians will as well", Netanyahu predicted on Tuesday.

Israel's intelligence minister said Sunday that alongside Sudan, Bahrain and Oman could be the next countries to follow the UAE in formalizing their relationships with Israel.

Just a few hours after the publication of the interview with Sadiq, and following large public exposure, Sudan's acting Foreign Minister Omar Qamar al-Din Ismail denied that Khartoum was negotiating an agreement with Israel, and stated that the Sudanese government was "surprised" by the claim by his spokesman.

Last week's announcement made the UAE the third Arab country to establish full diplomatic ties with Israel. Israel was believed to have been behind airstrikes in Sudan that destroyed a convoy in 2009 and a weapons factory in 2012.

Netanyahu last week called Cohen to thank him for the Mossad's assistance "in developing the ties with the Gulf states over the years, which assisted in bringing the peace treaty to fruition", the prime minister's office said.

An early indication of progress came in February, when Sudan granted overflight permission to Israeli commercial aircraft.

"It will transform Israeli aviation and the Israeli economy with tremendous scope for tourism for both sides and enormous scope for investment", said Netanyahu.

A deal is expected to be initialled on August 28, Sudan's state news agency SUNA reported, citing Tut Gatluak, South Sudan's presidential envoy on security.

In his upbeat comments on Tuesday, Netanyahu praised the courage of Sudan's Lt. Netanyahu and Burhan met in Uganda in February to work out the terms of the overflight deal. The Israelis indicated on Tuesday they would give Sudan ample time to develop its side of the proposed normalization agreement.

Sudanese officials on Tuesday (Aug 18) issued contradictory comments on whether the country was in contact with Israel with a view to normalising relations between the two nations.
