Following months of negotiations between Khartoum and Washington, the United States is pleased to dismiss judgements and claims against Sudan in the U.S. courts. In addition, the U.S. will restore Sudan’s sovereignty immunity.

 

Addressing the media after the signing of the agreement between Sudan and the U.S., Sudan’s Ministry of Justice, Nasreldin Abdelbari, announced yesterday that the two countries have reached an agreement to restore clean up Sudan’s reputation under the U.S law.

 

Despite promising to pay $335 million earlier, this new deal did not come without extra financial commitment from the Sudanese. In addition to $335 millions, Khartoum is expected to pay extra $72 millions to clean its records from the U.S. database.

 

According to the agreement, which will enter into force after legislation is enacted, Sudan will pay $335 million, on top of approximately $72 million already paid, for distribution to victims of terrorism,” part of a statement released by the justice ministry reads.

 

In exchange, the default judgments and claims against Sudan in U.S. courts will be dismissed, and Sudan’s sovereign immunities under U.S. law will be restored to those enjoyed by countries that have never been designated by the United States as a State Sponsor of Terrorism,” the statement added.

 

In addition to paying over $400 millions, Sudan is also crafting a deal with Israel at the demand of the U.S and collectively, these will see Sudan removed from the Americans’ blacker. Now that the two countries have reached these agreements, President Trump will now face the Congress to restore Sudan’s sovereignty, the only body that has such powers.
