Sudan Foreign Minister Wants U.S. to Remove Terror Sponsor Label

  • Seeks to continue dialogue with new U.S. administration
  • U.S. has lifted economic sanctions imposed 20 years ago

Sudan wants to be removed from the U.S. list of countries accused of sponsoring terrorism as a follow-up to a relaxed sanction regime, Foreign Affairs Minister Ibrahim Ghandour said.

The African country is committed to dialogue with all nations and is making efforts to achieve peace and stability in the region and the African continent, Ghandour was quoted by the state-run Sudan News Agency’s website as saying on Jan 13.

Sudan wants to continue talks with the new U.S. administration on international peace and security, counter-terrorism, human trafficking, protection of wildlife and other areas of common interest to remove its name from the list of terrorism-sponsoring countries, SUNA reported.
