Trump announces plans to remove Sudan from state sponsors of terrorism list

US ready to delist Sudan as state sponsor of terror: Trump

US President Donald Trump said Sudan will be removed from the United States' list of state sponsors of terrorism if the capital Khartoum follows through on a pledge to pay US$335 million ($475 million) to American victims of terrorism and their families. New government of Sudan, which is making great progress, agreed to pay $335 MILLION to USA terror victims and families. It accused Sudan of sheltering the terrorist chief and demanded compensation.

Many in Sudan say the designation, imposed in 1993 because Washington believed Bashir was supporting militant groups, has become outdated since he was removed a year ago and Sudan has long cooperated on counterterrorism.

The top civilian official in the coalition, Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, has repeatedly urged the US administration not to link Sudan's removal from the list to normalization with Israel.

"We very much look forward to your official notification to Congress rescinding the designation of Sudan as a state-sponsor of terrorism, which has cost Sudan too much", Hamdok wrote, also on Twitter.

The US Congress would need to approve the removal after being formally notified by the president.

Sudan was put on the list in 1993, when the U.S. government charged the country's leader at the time, Omar Hassan al-Bashir, of giving shelter to Hezbollah and Palestinian militant groups that the United States considers terrorists.

The decision was contingent on Sudan following through on its agreement to pay $335 million to US terror victims and families.

Sudan's transitional government has already agreed with the U.S. State Department, in theory, to a compensation deal for victims of the 1998 bombings of the American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, which were orchestrated by bin Laden's al-Qaida network while he was living in Sudan.

"It enhances its (Sudan's) integration into global community and access to world economy". Last month, annual inflation rose to 212.29 percent from 166.83 percent in August, according to the country's Central Bureau of Statistics. After two years of formal negotiations, the new government has been cooperating with the United States. on counter-terrorism efforts.

The impact of the lack of hard currency can be seen daily in the long queues for bread and fuel filling the sidewalks of Khartoum.

The deal could also set in motion steps by Sudan toward establishing diplomatic relations with Israel, one of the officials told Reuters, following similar US-brokered moves in recent weeks by the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. The Sovereign Council is supposed to transition to civilian control next year, then cede power to an elected government in 2022.

Although Trump made no mention of Israel in his tweet announcing the breakthrough with Sudan, rapprochement between Israel and another Arab country would give Trump a new diplomatic achievement as he seeks re-election on November 3.

In September, talks between the two sides in the UAE failed to produce a deal, with reports suggesting that Sudan had asked for oil and wheat shipments, as well as billions of dollars to aid its deteriorating economy in return for such a move.

One possibility, a USA official said, would be for Washington to leave it to Sudan and Israel to go public later, possibly in coming days, with an agreement on opening relations.

Sudan has been on the list since 1993 When its former leader was believed to have supported militia groups.
