Sudanese official: Obama supports lifting sanctions on Sudan

Ghazi Salah Al-Din, a senior advisor to the Sudanese president who is in charge of Sudan-U.S. relations, said that Obama endorsed the call made by U.S. special envoy to Sudan Scott Gration to lift the sanctions on Sudan, as well as Gration's July 30, 2009 testimony before the Congress. He said that Gration's position represented a significant step forward in the relations between the two countries, even though there were still internal disagreements in the U.S. regarding normalization with Sudan.
