Sudanese PM says he had direct and transparent talks with Pompeo about removing Sudan from terror list

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo meets with Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, in Khartoum, on Aug. 25, 2020.U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived in Sudan on Tuesday, the most senior U.S. official to visit the African country since last year’s ouster of its autocratic leader, Omar al-Bashir.

His flight was the first direct trip between Tel Aviv to the Sudanese capital Khartoum. Pompeo was in Israel on Monday on the first stop of his multi-country tour in the region. The trip follows the Aug. 13 agreement by Israel and the United Arab Emirates to establish diplomatic ties. “I continue to look forward to positive, tangible steps in supporting the glorious Sudanese revolution,” he tweeted.

“Great to be in Khartoum for meetings with the civilian-led transitional government. The democratic transition under way is a once in a generation opportunity for the people of Sudan. Looking forward to discussing how to deepen the U.S.-Sudan relationship,” Pompeo tweeted. At the time of the Burhan-Netanyahu meeting, the Sudanese military said the talks with Israel were an effort to help end Sudan’s status as an international pariah state.

But in recent years those hostilities have softened, and both countries have expressed readiness to normalize relations.
