US invites senior Sudanese delegation

24 April 2013, 12:16

Washington - The Obama administration is preparing to welcome a senior Sudanese delegation to the United States for some rare highest-level diplomacy between the countries.

State Department spokesperson Hilary Renner says Sudanese presidential adviser Nafie Ali Nafie and other officials have accepted an invitation to Washington for a "candid discussion on the conflicts and humanitarian crises within Sudan".

She says no date has yet been fixed.

But it has been years since the US received such a high-level delegation from Sudan, which Washington has considered a state sponsor of terrorism since 1993.

The US also blames the African country for atrocities in Darfur and along the border with South Sudan.

Renner said on Tuesday the US remains concerned about Sudan's "aerial bombardment of civilian areas", human trafficking and other rights issues.
