C‘is in the Oval Office, surrounded in particular by his Foreign Secretary Mike Pompeo and his son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner, whom Mr. Trump said the two enemy countries had done “the peace”.
The US president was on the phone, on loudspeaker, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Sudanese counterpart Abdallah Hamdok. The latter thanked Mr. Trump for deciding to remove his country from the list of states supporting terrorism, saying that this decision would have a major economic impact. “We are expanding the circle of peace so quickly thanks to your leadership”, for his part greeted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Before Sudan, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain had agreed to normalize their relations with Israel. It is “A new major step towards peace in the Middle East”, tweeted White House spokesman Judd Deere.
Shortly before, the White House announced that Donald Trump was going to remove Sudan from the list of states supporting terrorism. Donald trump “Informed Congress of its intention to formally withdraw the designation of Sudan as the sponsor state of terrorism”, said the US executive, calling this development “Pivotal moment” for Sudan and relations between Washington and Khartoum.
The announcement comes after Sudan has “Agreed to resolve some claims of American victims of terrorism and their families. Yesterday, under this agreement, the transitional government of Sudan transferred $ 335 million to an escrow account for these victims and their families ”, said the White House. These include the attacks perpetrated in 1998 by the jihadist nebula Al-Qaeda against the United States embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, which left more than 200 dead.
Off the blacklist
Sudan, once an outcast of the international community for welcoming al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in the 1990s, has been ordered to pay such compensation by the American courts. The agreement paves the way for “A new future of collaboration and support for the historic transition underway” in Sudan, according to the White House, which greeted the country’s transitional authorities. The executive finally called on the US Congress to pass the necessary legislation to implement the agreement.
Sudan has been on this American blacklist since 1993, synonymous with hindering investments for this poor country. The United States reconnected with Khartoum already under former Democratic President Barack Obama, when former Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir began to cooperate in the fight against terrorism and played the game of peace in South Sudan.
The revolution which swept away Omar al-Bashir only accelerated the movement. Since the fall of the al-Bashir regime in April 2019, Sudan has been ruled by a transitional authority in which military and civilians share power, until the elections scheduled for 2022.
