Washington’s decision to remove Sudan from a list of state terrorism supporters comes into effect on Monday. This was announced by the US embassy in Khartoum. Sudan has had this title since 1993, on the grounds that the ousted President Omar al-Bashir had prepared the ground to accommodate militant groups. Sudan was cut off from financial aid and investment.
The move comes after a 45-day review phase in Congress after US President Donald Trump announced that he would remove Sudan from the list. Shortly thereafter, it was announced that Israel and Sudan intended to normalize relations.
