Sudan said Saturday that it will press forward on its cooperation with Washington in countering international terrorism, one day after outgoing U.S. President Barack Obama ended two decades of sanctions on the East African country, APA reports quoting AA.
Mohamed Atta, head of the Sudanese national intelligence and security services (NISS), told reporters in the capital Khartoum that the government will continue working with the administration of President-elect Donald Trump in fighting regional terrorism.
He further promised that Khartoum will continue cooperating with the CIA and other intelligence agencies in order to stop any regional terrorist threat.
Atta said Sudan has allowed U.S. intelligence agents to inspect its borders with Libya to confirm that it does not allow any kind of illegal cross-border activities.
He added that Sudan is fighting terrorism in line with its own national, political, and religious principals and not due to international pressure.
Atta stressed that Sudan is ready to deal with any counter-attacks resulting from its counter-terrorism cooperation with the U.S. and reiterated that the U.S. should remove Sudan from its list of countries sponsoring terrorism.
