Sudan expects the United States to revoke Economic sanction placed on Khartoum since it has met the required condition. A Sudanese minister said.

Khartoum was perceived by the US to support global terrorism and violent suppression of rebels in Darfur Hence, the sanction of Khartoum by the US.

“Sudan has fulfilled all the necessary conditions relating to the roadmap and the U.S. administration is a witness to that and therefore we expect the sanctions to be lifted,” Sudan’s State Minister for Foreign Affairs, Hamed Momtaz, said.

Some rights groups have raised concerns, saying the lifting of sanctions could lead to further abuses.

“We’re afraid lifting the sanctions could pave way for the government to … violate rights,” said Al-Buraq al-Nazir al-Warraq, the executive manager of the Sudanese Observatory for Human Rights, a group suspended by the government.
