US removes Sudan from State Sponsor of Terrorism list

US removes Sudan from State Sponsor of Terrorism list (Updated: Monday, 14th December 2020, 06:19 PM)


The United States of America has lifted its designation of Sudan as a state sponsor of terrorism.

Sudan’s Prime Minister, Mr Abdalla Hamdok, disclosed this on his verified Twitter handle on Monday.

Hamdok tweeted, “Today, after more than two decades, it has been announced to our people that the name of our beloved country has come out of the list of states sponsoring terrorism.

“This marks our liberation from the international and global blockade in which the behaviour of the ousted regime has forced us.

“Today, we return with all our history, the civilisation of our people, the greatness of our country and the vigour of our revolution to the international community.”

The US designated Sudan as a state sponsor of terror in 1993 partly for its alleged support of militant Palestinian groups such as Hamas.

Then under the leadership of its former strongman, Omar al-Bashir, the country was also accused of harbouring al-Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden.

Al-Bashir, whose policies enraged the U.S. and Israel, was ousted by a mass protest movement in 2018.

Monday’s move means that Sudan will now regain access to international lending institutions and economic development.
