The delisting of Sudan as a state sponsor of terrorism by the US has been clarified by Michael R. Pompeo, Secretary of State.

In a statement, he said, “This achievement was made possible by the efforts of Sudan’s civilian-led transitional government to chart a bold new course away from the legacy of the Bashir regime and, in particular, to meet the statutory and policy criteria for rescission”.

The US decision the Secretary added “represents a fundamental change in our bilateral relationship toward greater collaboration and support for Sudan’s historic democratic transition”.

Mr Pompeo then commended the calls of the Sudanese people for freedom, peace, and justice, and congratulated the members of the civilian-led transitional government, ” for their courage in advancing the aspirations of the citizens they serve”.
