The U.S. government’s October 2017 lifting of its comprehensive economic and financial sanctions on Sudan has created the impression that the Sudanese regime of President Omar al-Bashir is evolving into a reliable partner and no longer poses a threat to the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States.

In this new report, author Dr. Suliman Baldo, Enough Project Senior Advisor, examines the Sudanese government’s persecution of Christians and many others in Sudan.
Continued religious persecution against Christians and other religious minorities, and ties with violent extremist groups, raises critical questions about the Khartoum regime’s role and true interests as a U.S. counterterrorism partner.
