Washington officially lifted economic sanctions on Sudan
The US State Department decided to end all economic sanctions imposed on Sudan, in a move that would give impetus to the Sudanese economy.
The Governor of the Central Bank of Sudan, Badr Al-Din Abdel Rahim Ibrahim, announced that the Central Bank received a letter from the Director of the Sanctions Office at the US State Department through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The letter confirmed that all forms of economic sanctions imposed on Sudan have been ended, according to Executive Orders 13067 and 13412, issued since October 12, 2017.
Ibrahim indicated that under the cancellation of the two orders, the penalties were lifted for 157 Sudanese institutions, and only some individuals and institutions related to the events in Darfur remain.
The letter indicates that this has nothing to do with the issue of bank transfers, as well as three links indicating the end of sanctions for 157 Sudanese enterprises on October 12, 2017.
The Central Bank of Sudan addressed the Sudanese banks and correspondents, and also addressed some central banks in the Arab countries to activate the banking correspondence relations in order to maximize the mutual benefit, according to a statement from the Central Bank.
On October 12, 2017, the United States decided to lift the US economic sanctions on Khartoum, after imposing it for 20 consecutive years, against the background of allegations of Khartoum's support for "terrorism", but the decision was not implemented.
