New era begins as Sudan removed from the Terror sponsor list, US state department

"The congressional notification period of 45 days has lapsed and the Secretary of State has signed a notification stating rescission of Sudan's State Sponsor of Terrorism designation is effective as of today (December 14), to be published in the Federal Register," the Embassy post in the social media  Facebook post. 

US President Donald Trump on October 23 has announced his intention of removing Sudan from the state sponsor of terrorism list as soon as the African country deposits a $335 million settlement amount for victims of the 1998 twin bombings at the two American Embassies in Tanzania and Kenya. Since 1993, Sudan occupied a place in the state sponsor of terrorism. The other three nations on the list are Iran, North Korea and Syria. Sudan faces multiple restrictions including a ban on defence exports and sales and restrictions on US foreign assistance due to its listing. 

Simultaneous truck bomb explosions that took place on August 7, 1998 at the American Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya, killed at least 224 people. They were linked to the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, brought the Al Qaeda to the attention of the international community for the first time and led to the FBI designating Osama bin Laden on its list of 10 most-wanted fugitives.
