Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Sudan sees economic hope as Trump signals terror list removal” – below is their description.
The Trump administration’s move to take Sudan off the list of countries which sponsor terrorism would help it gain international acceptance and enable it to seek economic relief, say analysts. Sudan which was accused of providing a base to al-Qaeda, has agreed to pay $335m to the US victims of the 1998 attacks. That is likely to bring an injection of international investment and allow urgently needed debt relief. Al Jazeera’s Hiba Morgan reports from Khartoum, Sudan. –Al Jazeera English YouTube Channel
