Colonel Abuzar Dafa Allah will serve as the military attaché at the Sudanese embassy in Washington, said Gharib Allah Khidir the spokesperson of the foreign ministry.

"This step indicates the resumption of military cooperation, even in a symbolic manner, but enhances the normalisation of relations between the two countries," he further told Sudan Tribune.

The appointment of a Sudanese military attaché in Washington comes after the arrival to Khartoum of the American military attaché who is here since several weeks. He met with the Sudanese defence minister and other high-ranking military officers.

U.S. State Department labelled Sudan a sponsor of terrorism on August 12, 1993.

Sudan’s inclusion in the list of state sponsors of terrorism prevents military cooperation between the two countries.

However, the development of security cooperation between the two countries pushed the two countries to move forward to upgrade bilateral relations despite the ban.

        compounds to grow the own damn foods. But the fools are refusing. Their own game is to sing the Jieng council of elders (JCE) day and night. And looting of resources. What resources do the Nuers and some Equatorians have in their own states? All the oil fields that generate all our the current meager over 90% income are the Dinkas/Jiengs countries>>>>
