US Removes Sudan From State Sponsor of Terror List

On Monday, the US formally removed Sudan from the list of state sponsors of terror after 27 years. The move came after Sudan agreed to normalize relations with Israel.

“Today, Sudan’s designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism is officially rescinded,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement. The US embassy in Khartoum also announced the news in a Facebook post.

Getting off the terror list has been a priority of Sudan’s government since former President Omar al-Bashir was removed from power by the military in 2019. Over the past year, Khartoum has been in close negotiations with the US over the list.
