Sudan ‘cuts diplomatic ties with North Korea’


Sudan has severed diplomatic relations with North Korea to satisfy US conditions for the lifting of economic sanctions, the UK-based Financial Times reports.

Washington is expected to announce its decision on whether to fully lift the sanctions on 12 October.

A senior Sudanese official yesterday said that they had met all the required conditions and expect the sanctions to be lifted.

In July, US President Donald Trump delayed his decision to permanently lift the economic embargo on Sudan by three months.

Economic sanctions were imposed against the country after the state was labelled a “sponsor of terrorism”.
