OIC Laments US Delay to Lift Sanctions on Sudan

Khartoum -- The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has expressed its regret over the US Administration's decision to postpone lifting of sanctions on Sudan for another three months despite Sudan's satisfactions of set conditions within the frame of dialogue between the two sides.
The OIC General Secretariat expressed solidarity with Sudan, adding that it has continued to call on the US Administration to lift what it describes as "unfair" sanctions – in light of a significant progress Sudan has made in its obligations to implementing agreed conditions as well as international and regional commitments in this connection.
The General Secretariat added that it has continued to call for the removal of Sudan from the US terror list, considering a tremendous cooperation it has demonstrated to cooperate with the international community to combat all forms of terrorism.
The Secretariat confirmed its commitment to solidarity and support to Sudan to end these sanctions in line with the decisions of the OIC summit the ministerial council back 10-11 July 2017.
The OIC demanded the US Administration to permanently have lifted the sanctions on its new proposed date by next October.
