Khartoum Terror Listing Still Up for Debate by U.S. Congress

Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdock last week announced that funds to compensate the families of the victims of the bombing of the destroyer USS Cole in Yemen in 2000, and the 1998 bombing of the US embassies in Dar El Salaam in Tanzania and Nairobi in Kenya have been raised.

Sudan's Council of Ministers has stressed the importance of the plan of engagement with the United States through bilateral cooperation and joint action, leading to the removal of Sudan from the list in order to start a new phase that witnesses normal relations between the two countries.

Prime Minister Hamdok also reiterated the country's position on ties with Israel. In an earlier meeting he  told U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, that the transitional government is not authorised to decide on the normalisation of relations with Israel.
