Recall Sudan, along with Iran, North Korea, and Syria was included in the list of State Sponsors of Terrorism in 1993 when al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden lived in the country as a guest of the government.
In October President Donald Trump said Sudan would be removed from the list after it pays $335 million (£259m) to victims of al-Qaeda 1998 bombing of US embassies in Africa.
The Sudanese Prime minister Abdalla agreed and transferred the funds.
