Saudi Arabia had welcomed the United States’ decision to remove Sudan from the State Sponsors of Terrorism list late last year.
“The Kingdom has long looked forward to this step, and has worked to support Sudan towards that end,” according to SPA.
“This step is considered an important milestone in Sudan’s history, and an important factor in supporting its stability and economic recovery for the prosperity of their people, and in reclaiming its vital role in the Arab world and the region and internationally,” the SPA report added.
The Kingdom has repeatedly affirmed it will continue to provide all possible means of support to ensure Sudan’s security and development, and to achieve prosperity for its people.
