The head of the Transitional Sovereignty Council in Sudan, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, announced, on Wednesday, that he discussed with the American delegation in Abu Dhabi the future of Arab-Israeli peace, pointing out that the Palestinian people’s right to obtain their rights according to the two-state solution was emphasized, oyogist.com reports.

He added that he held fruitful talks with the Americans in Abu Dhabi regarding removing Sudan from the list of terrorism.

In addition, he made it clear that the results of the talks with the US delegation in Abu Dhabi would be presented to the institutions of transitional government in Sudan.

The head of the Sudanese Sovereignty Council, on his visit to the Emirates, held joint talks with the Emirati leadership, related to all regional issues related to the Sudanese issue.

The Sovereignty Council had previously announced that the Sudanese delegation would engage in direct negotiations with a team from the American administration present in the UAE regarding removing Sudan from the list of countries sponsoring terrorism and supporting the transitional period, exempting the country from American debts, and urging the rest of the friendly countries to take serious steps in this regard.

He also explained that the visit of the government delegation to the Emirates takes two tracks, the first with the Emirati leadership and led by the Chairman of the Sovereignty Council, while the second track is led by Minister of Justice Nasreddin Abdul Bari with the American administration team.


In addition, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urged Congress to pass an agreement to remove Sudan from the list of countries sponsoring terrorism as soon as possible.

Pompeo’s message: In a message he addressed to the leader of the Republican majority in the Senate, according to what AFP reported on Wednesday, Pompeo considered that the United States has a unique and narrow window to support Sudan’s civilian transitional government.

He also stressed in his message that the agreement should be passed before mid-October, provided that compensation will be paid to the victims as soon as Sudan is removed from the list.

It is noteworthy that the penalty for including Sudan on the US black list of states sponsoring terrorism, which is considered an obstacle to investments in this country in Northeast Africa, dates back to 1993. The crisis worsened with the 1998 attacks, which killed more than two hundred people.

Sudan, headed by Omar al-Bashir, who was accused of providing refuge to al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden for years, became a pariah for the Americans.

However, the popular uprising that toppled the former Sudanese regime in the spring of 2019 accelerated the diplomatic movement between the two countries, and Pompeo did not provide his support for the head of the transitional government, Abdullah Hamdok.

However, negotiations have faltered due to the delicate court case regarding compensation payments to the families of the victims of the 1998 attacks.
