Sudan Resumes Military Relations with US after 2-Decade Suspension

KHARTOUM Ė The Sudanese army has resumed military relations with the United States after a 20-year suspension due to economic sanctions imposed on the African country that were lifted in 2017, the Sudanese government announced on Saturday.

The Sudanese government inaugurated its military attache office in Washington, during commander-in-chief Kamal Abdul-Marouf Al-Mahiís visit to the United States, the Sudanese Armed Forces said in a statement.

The US appointed a military attache to Khartoum and Sudan named its own in Washington in October 2017, two decades after the military ties were cut.

During the visit, US officials and Al-Mahi discussed Sudanís efforts to tackle terrorism, human trafficking and illegal immigration, as well as the African countryís role in regional cooperation and in facilitating a peace agreement with South Sudan, the statement says.

On Nov. 4, 1997, then-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright announced US sanctions against Sudan for sponsoring international terrorism.

Shortly before leaving office in 2017, US President Barack Obama decided to lift part of the sanctions imposed on Sudan in response to the positive steps the African country had taken.

However, Sudan is still on the State Sponsors of Terrorism list, an issue Al-Mahi said he would discuss during his visit.
