    Whem US President renewed U.S. sanctions on Sudan on Friday, US Department of State issued statement saying the administration is keen to ago ahead with dialogue with Sudanese government to improbe bilateral ties.

    Although the statement has acknowledged the breakthrough regarding pending issues with South Sudan, it described the continuing conflict Kordofan and Blue Nile statess a threat to regional stability.

    The Department of State has urged Sudan to resolve the disputes in the two regions and facilitate the delivery of humanitarian assistance as a condition for the improvement of joint ties.

    Surprisingly, President Obama said in his speech before the Congress on Nove 3,that Sudan’s policy constitutes a threat US security.

    The question to arise here, how can the conflict in Blue Nile or South Kordofan threaten US national security? The President has forgot that South Sudan’s allies were behind the dispute in the two areas.

    Another question is how can the Department of State associate the lift of sanctions with the improvement the situations in the two regions and improvement of the humanitarian situations?

    The American administration has acknowledged more than once that Sudan has honored its commitments but the American administration, time and again, has withdrawn from its promises since the signing of Abuja Peace deal, 2006, Naivasha Peace Agreement, 2005 and the referadum in south Sudan.

    Many Sudanese officials expected the United States to take steps to normalize relations with Khartoum after the South seceded peacefully last year, and have been disappointed by the renewal of the trade sanctions.

    It’s evident that when the dispute in South and Blue Nile comes to an end, Washington will work hard to fan another one, to remain the sanctions so that all the promises to fade away. US has been playing this game for seven years.

    Why do you imagine the US is looking for pretexts to continue the sanctions?
