Washington. The United States has removed Sudan from its list of state-sponsored terrorists. The United States is believed to have given the gift to Sudan in exchange for political recognition of Israel. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo signed the notification Monday and gave it legal recognition. The U.S. embassy in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, has said that the 45-day period of notification to the US Congress has expired and has been signed by the foreign minister. This order is effective from today. Now it has to be published in the Federal Register. Please note that the United States added Sudan to this list in 1993.

In October, Sudan announced the resumption of diplomatic relations with Israel. US President Donald Trump is said to have a big hand in implementing the agreement. Earlier, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain had also established diplomatic relations with Israel through Trump’s mediation. It is said that this friendship has given the United States great relief to Sudan.
