Sudan to Get US Funding After Terror Delisting, Minister Says

Sudan's Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok said Trump's tweet is 'the strongest support to Sudan’s transition to democracy'

The package would compensate victims and families from a series of terrorist attacks, including the bombing of USA embassies in Tanzania and Kenya in 1998, as well as an attack on the USS Cole in Yemen in 2000.

It accused Sudan of sheltering the terrorist chief and demanded compensation.

Al-Bashir was toppled in a military coup past year following mass protests, and a transitional government led by Hamdok was put in charge.

Sudan's terrorism designation dates to its toppled ruler Omar al-Bashir and has made it hard for its transitional government to access urgently needed debt relief and foreign financing.

Thanks to US sanctions going back to the 1990s, Sudan has been largely cut off from the worldwide banking system.

According to reports, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo could normalize US relations with Sudan if the country establishes diplomatic relations with Israel.

President Trump vs Joe Biden: What to Watch for Tonight
Biden is steadily ahead, with the Quinnipiac University national poll putting him up at 51 percent to Trump's 41. The contentious first debate between Biden and Trump was watched by at least 73 million viewers.

In a public address to the nation, Sudan's Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok said that Trump's move would help Sudan reenter the global community. "At long last, JUSTICE for the American people and BIG step for Sudan!"

"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", he said, calling his nation's presence on the notorious list "the heaviest legacy" of its previous "regime".

The Sudanese government warmly welcomed the decision to remove the country from Washington's State Sponsor of Terrorism (SST) list, while stressing that Sudan had never been a terror state and that it now wanted to focus on overcoming the economic difficulties arising from having been blacklisted. Nour, it was the main categories of Eritrean and Sudanese sanctions resulting from designation under these authorities include restrictions on US foreign assistance; a ban on defense exports and sales; certain controls over exports of dual use items; and miscellaneous financial and other restrictions. General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the head of the Sudanese military and arguably the most powerful member of the new government had an impromptu meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Uganda earlier this year. An agreement to resolve those issues fell apart last month, sources told ABC News at the time.

"Thank you so much, President Trump!"

Those historic agreements, between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, have formalized increasing cooperation behind closed doors - and been brandished by Trump and his reelection campaign as evidence of his statesmanship.

"A key sticking point in the negotiations was Sudan's insistence that any announcement of Khartoum's de-listing not be explicitly linked to normalization with Israel". The Sovereign Council is supposed to transition to civilian control next year, then cede power to an elected government in 2022.
