Sudan Normalizes Israel Ties, Trump Ends ‘Terrorist’ Listing
In deals involving Sudan, the United States and Israel, Khartoum is normalising relations with the Middle East state, and has agreed to pay Washington reparations for the involvement of past governments in attacks on Americans.
In exchange for the reparations, the Trump administration will remove Sudan from the U.S. list of countries sponsoring terrorism, and press for Sudan to be given debt relief under the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) initiative.
Critics of the deal with Israel have previously suggested that the U.S. was using the unratified announcement of its deal with Sudan to leverage the country to normalise relations with Israel, despite sources close to the Sudanese government stating that it was resolute in treating the two as separate issues.
