Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu plans to appoint a professional committee to draw up plans to repatriate Sudanese asylum-seekers as part of the normalization agreement with Khartoum.

Senior Israel officials said that, during the talks ahead of last week’s normalization announcement, Sudanese officials agreed to the migrants’ return, and Israel seeks to repatriate “as many as possible."

Munim Haroon is an asylum seeker from Sudan who lives near Jerusalem.

He told KAN's Mark Weiss that even though the prospect of normalization is exciting, 99 percent of Sudanese asylum seekers will not want to go back home even  if Jerusalem and Khartoum establish full diplomatic relations.
