Thaw in US-Sudan Relations May Have Positive Effects in Region

After a decade of severed ties because of Sudan's links to terrorism, the U.S. is edging toward improved relations with the northeast African country, with the fight against terror ironically the motivation behind the thaw. Regional security scholar Akasha Allsayed said renewed diplomatic contacts between Washington and the Islamic government in Khartoum were to be welcomed and could lead to a "breakthrough" in peace talks between the government and southern rebels.
