US President Donald Trump said Monday that an agreement was reached with Sudan and Khartoum would be lifted from the US list of state sponsors of terrorism after it paid $335 million to American victims of terrorism.
GREAT news! New government of Sudan, which is making great progress, agreed to pay $335 MILLION to U.S. terror victims and families. Once deposited, I will lift Sudan from the State Sponsors of Terrorism list. At long last, JUSTICE for the American people and BIG step for Sudan!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 19, 2020
Thank you so much, President Trump! We very much look forward to your official notification to Congress rescinding the designation of Sudan as a state-sponsor of terrorism, which has cost Sudan too much. https://t.co/GeScTPfb0k— Abdalla Hamdok (@SudanPMHamdok) October 19, 2020
