Al-Burhan welcomes U.S. removal of Sudan from state sponsors of terrorism list
Chairman of Sudan’s Sovereign Council Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan on Monday said the removal of Sudan from the U.S. list of states sponsoring terrorism contributes to supporting democratic transition.
“This decision will contribute to supporting the democratic transition and enhance the opportunities for the success of the transitional period as well as the prosperity of the Sudanese people,” Al-Burhan said on his Twitter account.
On Oct. 19, U.S. President Donald Trump said that he would remove Sudan from the list after Sudan pays 335 million U.S. dollars to American victims.
