and world bank if in efforts by washington to remove sudan from the list in recent years in twenty seven thousand trade and economic sanctions were lifted the government of all maga share was accused of financing and supporting groups such as hamas and hezbollah the u.s. designates those group as terrorist organizations that burton was director of policy for the u.s. special envoy to sudan under president barack obama is now a nonresident fellow at the brookings institution he says washington has an opportunity to give sudan a second chance. this discussion is not new it's been part of ongoing bilateral negotiations with the now fallen regime in sudan the discussion is happening again inside the administration here in washington as to whether that does ignition could be lifted more quickly so should some of the demands of the protesters be met should a civilian led government be put in place should the terms of a transition be articulated right now policymakers in washington are are trying to
2:42 pm
find a way that they could lift that designation sooner in many ways it prevents debt relief and foreign assistance and other forms of cooperation but above all it's a scarlet letter that really denotes sudan as a kind of pariah state the situation is fast and fluid and folks in washington are trying to keep abreast of developments in these really critical hours and days i do think both the administration and members of congress could step forward right now and articulate that they're ready to support a transition both by lifting remaining punitive measures such as the state sponsored terrorism doesn't nation but also by putting some incentives on the table readiness to support debt relief or readiness to restore diplomatic relations in due course should the right steps be taken the secretary of state could make a visit to khartoum washington could indicate that it's ready to designate a new ambassador to sudan which it hasn't had since one thousand nine hundred seventy so what happens in sudan in the coming hours and days will be decided by

2:44 pm
is on the wrong side of history that the saudi air war against whom the fighters has its state created a bass of humanitarian catastrophe in that country which has been under civil war for more than four years of congress are also angry that the tropic ministration is continuing the pattern of never it big war of going into conflicts around the world without getting the express permission of congress first and they're also trying to express their disapproval and the light of the fact that in their view no what has been held fully accountable for the burger of saudi writer jamal khashoggi back in october it is widely assumed that the saudi crown prince mohammed bin sol bond may have been behind the plot to. murder and so for those three reasons congress said that it should have some sort of limit placed a u.s. military action in yabut however the u.s.
