Abstract:

This paper argues that the U.S. government should remove Sudan from the list of states that sponsor terrorism. It makes this argument based on four reasons. First, removal from the list would be in the mutual interests of both Sudan and the United States. Secondly, the Sudanese government has taken positive steps over the past year in pursuing a closer relationship with the US government and in its compliance with US policy. Third, redesignation of Sudan as a state that no longer sponsors terrorism would have a positive impact the international community. Fourth, removing Sudans designation as a state sponsor of terrorism would help foster a positive attitude towards the United States for Arabs living in North Africa and in the Middle East.
