The United States has applauded the dramatic progress in democratic governance that the civilian-led transitional government of Sudan has made in working towards freedom, peace and justice for the Sudanese people.
In a statement from US Secretary of State, Michael R. Pompeo on November 02, 2020, the United States of America recognizes the outstanding improvement that the transitional government has made in advancing human rights and commends it’s efforts to bring peace to Darfur and Sudan’s other conflict areas.
Since the ousting of former Sudanese leader, Omar Al Bechir, the new government of Sudan has been very instrumental in promoting democratic governance in the country.
The president’s recent decision to move forward with rescission of Sudan’s State Sponsors of Terrorism (SST) designation reflects the civilian-led transitional government’s sustained efforts to make sure there is no support for acts of international terrorism.
As part of its peace moves, the new government of Sudan recently decided to join the Abraham Accords and to normalize ties with Israel in pursuit of peace, security, and prosperity.
This and more greatly improved the bilateral relationship between Sudan and the US.
According to Michael Pompeo, the United States is invested in building a strategic partnership with Sudan and reinforce support to the Sudanese people.
“In recognition of the important steps that the Sudanese government has taken toward peace in Sudan’s conflict areas, the United States is committed to working with the Sudanese government and US International partners to identify circumstances that could result in lifting sanctions related to the Darfur conflict in the earliest opportunity.” the US Secretary of State said.
Consultations at the UN with this objective in mind has already started.
