Between two campaign meetings, Donald Trump decided to remove Sudan from the blacklist of states supporting terrorism, due to the appointment of a transitional government.

Donald Trump opened the way on Monday for the withdrawal of Sudan from the American blacklist of states supporting terrorism, a turning point immediately hailed by Khartoum, which called for the lifting of this heavy sanction in force for almost 30 years. “Excellent news! Sudan's new government, which is making real progress, has agreed to pay $ 335 million to American victims of terrorism and their families. Once paid, I will remove Sudan from the list of states supporting terrorism ”, tweeted the president of United States , without specifying a timeline.

“Thank you very much President Trump! ", Sudanese Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok immediately replied on Twitter. "We are on the verge of shedding the heaviest legacy of the late regime" , said the one who has led a transitional government since the fall of the autocrat Omar al-Bashir in 2019 .

How Trump impacted the fight against climate change

  How Trump impacted the fight against climate change In late August, U.S. President Donald Trump rolled back one of the last major environmental regulations made under the Obama administration.The rollback was the latest in a series of dismantling former President Barack Obama's efforts to cut climate-changing emissions from the oil, gas and coal industries.

And in the final days of the Obama administration, after years of negotiations , the United States began easing sanctions against Sudan to reward its By the end of the year , it is estimated that they will have received a combined 5 million from the U . S . Victims of State Sponsored Terrorism Fund

The United States permanently lifted a raft of sanctions on Sudan on Friday, saying the African nation had The decision to lift the sanctions and end an economic embargo comes after the Trump And it does not remove Sudan from the list of state sponsors of terrorism, a removal ardently sought by its

The European Union also welcomed a decision "capital" which "strengthens integration" of Sudan “in the international community and its access to the world economy” .

The head of American diplomacy Mike Pompeo had mentioned in September a draft agreement providing for the payment into a blocked account of these Sudanese indemnities for the families of the victims of the attacks perpetrated in 1998 by the jihadist nebula Al-Qaeda against the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, which had claimed more than 200 lives.

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.

According to the agreement, however, these funds will not be transferred to the plaintiffs until the Sudan is removed from the blacklist. Mike Pompeo had said last month that it would happen "very likely" before the end of October.

Pompeo hopes Sudan will recognize Israel "quickly"

 Pompeo hopes Sudan will recognize Israel © Provided by Le Point US Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday he hopes Sudan will normalize diplomatic relations with Israel "soon" after the United States announced the upcoming withdrawal of Khartoum from their blacklist of states supporting terrorism. "We continue to work to advocate for the recognition of Israel by all countries," the secretary of state said at a press conference in Washington.

NAIROBI, Kenya — A month after the Trump administration formally lifted decades-old sanctions against Sudan , a Deputy Secretary of State John J. Sullivan said the United States was willing to consider removing Sudan from the its list of state sponsors of terrorism if Sudan continued to make

The removal of Sudan from the list was due to a positive review of the country’s information exchange and security cooperation with Washington, senior administration officials told The Washington Post. Speaking to reporters at his New Jersey golf club Sunday afternoon before the ban was unveiled, he

"We urge Congress to immediately pass the law necessary to implement the agreement," , said Edith Bartley, spokesperson for the families of Americans killed at the Nairobi embassy. "This agreement cannot be the victim of blockages and quarrels by elected officials" , she said, while a handful of influential Democratic senators have so far expressed their reservations.

At the same time, Washington has stepped up pressure for Khartoum to normalize its relations with Israel ahead of the US presidential election on November 3, as the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain have done in recent weeks.

The Trump administration, without denying this insistent demand, assures that there is no direct link with the lifting of sanctions, but several observers and media have reported otherwise.

On Monday, neither the White House nor Khartoum discussed a possible Israeli-Sudanese deal.

"Arab-Israeli peace"

Despite negotiations well advanced, Abdallah Hamdok had accused the United States on October 11 of endangering the democratization of his country, thus appearing to be annoyed with an American turnaround or delay .

October 23, 2020. US President Donald Trump announced this Friday, October 23, the normalization of diplomatic relations between Israel and Sudan, assuring that the two countries had made "peace". After the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, the Hebrew state will normalize its relations with a third country.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok of Sudan in Khartoum last month. However, other senior officials, some from the military, said they favored normalization with Israel, especially if it helped lift the stigma of the United States ’ terrorism designation.

Removal from the US blacklist would allow sanctions to be lifted, a major objective of Sudan 's new government. The country's information minister told the Associated Press that figures for the USS Cole compensation could not be revealed as negotiations were ongoing to reach a similar settlement

Khartoum in fact ensures since last month to have collected the amount of compensation.

Sudan has been on this American blacklist since 1993, synonymous with hindering investments for this poor country.

The United States has reconnected with Khartoum already under former Democratic President Barack Obama, when Omar al-Bashir began to cooperate in the fight against terrorism and played the game of peace in South Sudan.

The revolution which swept through Omar al-Bashir only accelerated the movement.

The United States has "a single and narrow window to support the transitional government led by a civilian in Sudan, which has finally got rid of the Islamist dictatorship" , Mike Pompeo wrote in a letter to senators in September.

The negotiations seem to have been complicated, more recently, by the Israeli dossier.

Abdallah Hamdok had dampened American hopes, saying, during a visit by Mike Pompeo to Khartoum in late August, that he had "no mandate" to settle this sensitive issue.

The negotiations nevertheless continued behind the scenes with positions that were perhaps less fixed, and possible divisions on this thorny subject between civilians and soldiers.

General Abdel Fattah al-Burhane, head of the Sovereign Council in Sudan, had in fact met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in February, before discussing in September with an American delegation the "role" of Sudan in "l 'future of Arab-Israeli peace' .
