Sudan begins negotiations with US to remove terrorist sponsors

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The new Prime Minister of Sudan, Abdullah Hamdan, announced the start of negotiations with the United States on the delisting of countries supporting terrorism, the Sudanese news agency SUNA reports.

Sudan was listed by the United States as a sponsor of terrorism on August 12, 1993. These sanctions, in particular, limit the ability of Sudanese banks to work with foreign partners.

“We began negotiations with the United States on the removal of Sudan from the list of states supporting terrorism,” he said.

Sudan’s new prime minister was sworn in on Wednesday. Handuk was promoted to the post of prime minister a few days ago by opposition forces. Sudan’s Transitional Military Council expressed support for it. Handuk was previously Executive Secretary of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA).

Handuk named the creation of a democratic, pluralistic system in the country, the fight against the economic crisis and the creation of an economy based on production as a priority as prime minister.
