Sudan, he added, should be removed from the list of state sponsors of terrorism, as this would significantly promote achieving economic developments, stability and prosperity in the country.

Sudan yesterday swore in its first cabinet since the removal of former President Omar Al-Bashir in April following nationwide protests against his rule.

The 18-member cabinet led by Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, which includes four women, took the oath at the presidential palace in Khartoum.
