The Wall Street Journal has reported that Sudan has vowed to compensate the families of victims of the 1998 U.S embassies bombings in Nairobi and Dar-es-Salaam,

Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok made this known said in an interview that his country will pay the compensation very soon.

Hamdok was interviewed during his first official visit to the U.S during which he was pushing the removal of Sudan from the U.S terrorism list.

He is quoted as saying that Sudan has consulted at length with the U.S and met most of the requirements for the removal from the list.

The Prime Minister added that only two major hindrances remain: Settling the cases relating to the terrorist attacks and co-operating with the U.S on combating extremism.

U.S Courts have said Sudan liable for ten billion dollars in damages, 5.9 billion dollars of which they say should go to survivors of the 1998 attack.
