Abdallah Barakat, secretary-general of the Sudanese National Umma Party, said, with regard to the question of normalization of relations with Israel, that circumstances had changed and that Sudan could not continue to be "held captive" by slogans uttered since 1967. He was speaking on Russia Today TV on September 15.


Abdallah Barakat: "We cannot continue to be held captive by slogans that have been voiced since the 1960s, since 1967. Circumstances have changed. Even in Islamic jurisprudence, everything has its appropriate time and place. These are political relations, not religious laws or beliefs. These are political relations between countries, and they are built on interests."
