The first US Ambassador to Sudan in 25 years took up his post on Wednesday 24th August 2022

 

 

Ambassador John Godfrey arrived today in Khartoum, the first US Ambassador to Sudan in nearly 25 years,” the US embassy said in a statement.

“Godfrey will work to strengthen relations between the American and Sudanese people and to support their aspirations to freedom, peace, justice, and a transition to democracy,” it added.

“He also looks forward to advancing priorities related to peace and security, economic development, and food security.”

Relations with Washington eased under Sudan’s now-ousted transitional government led by former prime minister Abdalla Hamdok, who took office following Bashir’s 2019 ouster on the back of mass protests against his rule.

In December 2019, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the United States would appoint an ambassador to Khartoum.
