Sudan's Bashir 'suspends sanctions talks with US'

Sudan freezes negotiations with US following delay in lifting sanctions

He and his government had previously said they met all requirements and expected sanctions to be lifted, although activists and opposition disagreed. Temporary sanctions relief took effect with immediate effect and this was due to become permanent on 12 July 2017.

"The administration recognises Sudan has made significant progress in these areas in the last six months, but the administration decided it needed more time to review Sudan's actions".

Former U.S. President Barack Obama announced the lifting of the 20-year-old sanctions in January, a move that would suspend a trade embargo, unfreeze assets and remove financial punishments that have hampered the Sudanese economy.

In order to permanently lift the sanctions, the USA has required Sudan to comply with five demands, which include resolving internal military conflicts in areas such as war-torn Darfur, cooperating on counter-terrorism and improving access to humanitarian aid.

Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir speaks in New Delhi, India, October 29, 2015.

Sudan said on Tuesday that it complied with all U.S. demands for lifting the sanctions imposed since 1997 for its alleged support of terrorism.

The U.S. has worked to isolate Sudan since the military coup that brought al-Bashir to power in 1989, and even if Trump lets the sanctions expire in October, other sanctions targeting him and some of his inner circle will remain in place regardless.

"We regret the issuing of this decision, which came after a long period of dialogue and interaction with the U.S.", Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour said on Wednesday after the decision on lifting sanctions was postponed.
