The Secretary General of the Secretariat of Sudanese Working Abroad (SSWA), Haj Majid Sowar has announced that they would establish a national mechanism to deal with the sanctions imposed on Sudan by the United States unilaterally, describing these sanctions as a flagrant violation of human rights and UN charters.
In statements on Monday, Sowar said the US sanctions are a political issue aims to slow down the growth of Sudan and obstruct the role that it could be played in Africa and the region, stressing the new mechanism will work to move the Sudanese working abroad to make pressure legally until the issue becomes issue of public opinion and to define the American people of the effects of unilateral sanctions on main sectors of Sudan
A delegation from Sudan’s native administration left for the United States on 6 June to urge the US administration to lift the economic sanctions imposed on the country.
Sudan is on the US list of countries supporting terrorism since 1993 and also subjected to economic sanctions since 1997.
Following the visits of the senior Sudanese officials to Washington, the US Deputy Assistant Secretary in the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor Steven Feldstein paid a five-day visit to Sudan.
The US Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) announced that is amending Sudan’s sanctions regime to allow exports of personal communications hardware and software including smart phones and laptops.
Washington acknowledges Sudan’s cooperation in the fight against terrorism, but attached new conditions to normalizing ties related to the end of the conflicts in Darfur, Blue Nile and South Kordofan.
Sudanese officials however, insist that issues of bilateral relations should be discussed without interfering in Sudan internal affairs.
