Sudan's Al-Burhan Discusses Removal from Terrorism List with US Leaders

On Wednesday, The Sudanese Sovereign Council chairman Abdelfattah Al Burhan held talks with US delegation of senior officials in Abu Dhabi regarding the removal of Sudan from terrorism list.

During the meeting, Al-Burhan said, "We discussed with the American delegation in Abu Dhabi the role of Sudan in achieving peace in the region."

He also affirmed the right of the Palestinian people to obtain their rights according to the two-state solution.

Sudan's transitional government, in charge since the toppling of Omar al-Bashir last year, has been pushing to get off the U.S. list, which hinders its ability to access foreign loans to tackle an economic crisis.

In August, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo raised the issue of Sudan establishing ties with Israel during a visit. Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok told him he had no mandate to do so.

The same month, the UAE, a key partner of the U.S., and Bahrain normalized ties with Israel in deals brokered by Washington, the first Arab states in a quarter of a century to break a longstanding taboo.

U.S. President Donald Trump has said he expects other Arab countries to follow suit.

Ties with Israel are a sensitive issue in Sudan, which was among the hardline Muslim foes of Israel under Bashir.
