The federal government welcomes the US announcement that it intends to remove Sudan from the list of countries supporting terrorism.

„Dies ist ein weiterer wichtiger Meilenstein im Transitionsprozess Sudans und bei der Wiedereingliederung des Landes in die internationale Gemeinschaft. Deutschland wird Sudan weiter unterstützen, damit der historische Wandel zu Frieden, Demokratie und wirtschaftlicher Erholung ein nachhaltiger Erfolg wird“, sagte eine Sprecherin des Auswärtigen Amtes am Dienstag.

The removal of Sudan from the US list of terrorist supporting states (SSTL) is a key requirement for Sudan's access to the international financial market, the debt relief process under the HIPC initiative (Heavily Indebted Poor Countries) and foreign investments, according to the Federal Foreign Office. After Sudan agreed to provide US $ 335 million in compensation payments to US victims of terrorist attacks from the time of the Bashir regime, US President Trump announced on October 19, 2020 that he would shortly remove Sudan from this list. The USA listed Sudan in 1993 because the country had given shelter to Islamist terrorists.
