• Sudan party warns extended US sanctions may encourage unrest

    0

    KHARTOUM: The party of Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir said Thursday it would hold the United States responsible for any insecurity in Sudan after Washington extended decades-old sanctions against Khartoum. Bashir on Wednesday suspended talks with Washington aimed at ending the sanctions, a day after US President Donald Trump postponed a decision on whether to lift the trade embargo permanently until October 12.

    His predecessor Barack Obama had eased the sanctions in January, but kept Sudan on review for six months, a period that ended on Wednesday. Obama had made the permanent lifting of the sanctions dependent on Khartoum’s progress in five areas of concern at the end of the review period.
