President Plans to Remove Sudan from Terrorism List

Action comes as that nation agrees to pay American victims of terror.

President Trump said on Monday that the U.S. State Department will remove Sudan from the list of state sponsors of terrorism once Sudan pledged to pay compensation of $335 million to the families of American terror victims. The move is part of the president’s strategy to negotiate normalized relations between Israel and Sudan.

Officials from the White House and the State Department have been in talks with Sudanese leaders for two months. Once the Sudanese government transfers the funds, President Trump is expected to sign an executive order that removed Sudan from the state sponsors of terrorism list. A U.S. Senate bill protecting Sudan from lawsuits from American terror victims is also being discussed.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God’s will would be accomplished in the efforts to add nations to the peace accords with Israel.
  • For the president’s administration as they work for peace in the Middle East.
  • For wisdom for the State Department as diplomatic relations are forged.
