The Trump administration has begun the process of removing Sudan from the terror watch list and is pushing the capital city of Khartoum to officially recognize Israel.
The White House is in the process of removing the northeastern African country of Sudan from the terror watch list this week – a move that is part of the process of the normalization of diplomatic ties between Israel and Sudan. Initial reports suggested that other incentives for Sudan include a significant amount of debt forgiven and increased financial aid.
Prior to the US removing Sudan from the terror watch list, Sudan agreed to send a significant amount of funds to the US to compensate terror victims and their families. Trump responded to their agreement to do so, tweeting, “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!”
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated on Wednesday that the US is urging the capital city of Khartoum to officially recognize the State of Israel in the process.
