Sudan’s state sponsor of terrorism designation rescinded


Sudan’s designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism is officially rescinded on Monday December 14. This represents a fundamental change in a bilateral relationship toward greater collaboration and support for Sudan’s historic democratic transition. “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,” according to a statement from State Department.

“We commend the calls of the Sudanese people for freedom, peace, and justice, and we congratulate the members of the civilian-led transitional government for their courage in advancing the aspirations of the citizens they serve,” the statement adds.
