Sudan Government Condmens Renewal Of Sanctions By The US

November 2, 2011 (Sudan Radio Service)

The government of Sudan on Wednesday condemned the renewal of the US sanction in Sudan.

The U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday extended sanctions on Sudan for another year, saying that Khartoum's policies had not yet improved enough to warrant their removal.

Speaking to SRS from Khartoum on Wednesday, the spokesperson of Sudan’s Foreign Ministry, Al Obeid Ahmed Morawah said the move is politically motivated.

[Al-Obeid Morawah]: “The sanctions imposed by the U.S. administration are political sanctions which were and still are aimed at damaging Sudan’s vital interests by hindering development ambitions and plans to fight poverty.”

In late 1997, the US Congress passed into law a bill that placed economic sanctions on the country of Sudan.
