UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The United States intends to exclude Sudan from the list of sponsors of terrorism, in which the State Department included it in 1993, if power in this country is transferred by peaceful means. On Tuesday, Reuters reported, citing a high-ranking White House representative.
“We will consider the possibility of excluding Sudan from the list of states sponsoring terrorism, if significant changes occur in the country and political power is transferred by peaceful means,” the agency quoted him as saying.
The Trump administration suspended negotiations with the Sudanese authorities after the April 11 military coup in the country.
In 1997, for violations of human rights in the country and the creation of a terrorist threat, the United States declared a trade embargo on Sudan and froze the assets of the Sudanese government located on American territory.
These sanctions were lifted by the US authorities in 2017 due to the fact that the Sudanese government continued to make progress in areas such as countering terrorists and respecting human rights.
