Sudan–United States relations

In a meeting between U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Chairman of the Sovereignty Council of Sudan Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the United States proposed removing Sudan from the U.S. state sponsors of terrorism list for $330 million compensation. The payment would allegedly go to American victims of Al-Qaida but ministers, opposition leaders, and other people in the country have expressed anger at the prospect of a multimillion-dollar payment to the United States.
