Washington lifts economic sanctions on Sudan

The United States lifted 20-year economic sanctions against Sudan on Friday, citing an improvement in human rights and counter-terrorism, a US official said.
In completing a process begun by former President Barack Obama at the end of his term and opposed by human rights groups, President Donald Trump raised an American trade embargo and other punitive measures that effectively separated Sudan from most of the world’s financial system.
The US official, who disclosed the decision on condition of anonymity, spoke before an official announcement on the matter later on Friday.
