WASHINGTON (CN) – The Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control is adding produce, medicine and medical devices to items that can be sold under a general export license to certain areas of the Sudan.
Now, most items may be exported to Southern Sudan, Southern Kordofan/Nuba Mountains State, Blue Nile State, Abyei, Darfur, and marginalized areas in and around Khartoum. The transactions still may not be related to property of the Sudanese Government or petroleum or petrochemicals, however.
Also, the financing, payment, and brokering of these sales only may be transacted through the specified areas of the Sudan.
The U.S. had imposed sanctions on all of the Sudan as a result of the Darfur crisis.
