The US government has eased sanctions against Sudan in a major step towards normalizing relations with a designated terrorism sponsor whose leader has been indicted on war crimes charges.
The move is a milestone in the rehabilitation of a state which earned international opprobrium for its generous hospitality towards violent extremists such as Osama bin Laden and Carlos the Jackal in the 1990s, and its more recent involvement in war crimes against its own people.
The decision was widely expected. Last week the Trump administration removed Sudan from its controversial list of countries whose citizens travel to the US is severely restricted.
