The African Union (AU) has called for lifting the unilateral sanctions on Sudan, pointing out that these sanctions are incompatible with all international laws and norms, especially the United Nations (UN) has condemned the sanctions.
Addressing a forum associated with the activities of the 56th session of the African Commission for Human and Peoples Rights held in the Gambian capital of Banjul on Friday, the head of AU Economic and Social Council, Dr. Shalangi, said it is time to lift the sanctions on Sudanese people, stressing their readiness to work with the African Commission to study the illegality and illegitimacy of the sanctions.
In last February the United States Department of Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) announced that it had decided to loosen U.S. sanctions on Sudan via allowing exports of personal communications hardware and software including smart phones and laptops.
The Sudanese-American relations are currently witnessing signs of breakthrough as the two sides started exchanging visits by senior officials for dialogue to discuss many issues that prevented full normalization of relations between Khartoum and Washington.
The United States has so far taken some small initial steps to lift export controls on agricultural machinery to help Sudan's struggling food sector, but has stressed that further progress is contingent on Khartoum's continued cooperation.
The United Nations estimates 300,000 people died in a humanitarian crisis following a government counter-insurgency campaign in Darfur in 2003 that Washington branded as genocide. Khartoum puts the figure at 10,000.
