On January 13, 2017, President Obama issued Executive Order, “Recognizing Positive Actions by the Government of Sudan and Providing for the Revocation of Certain Sudan-Related Sanctions” (“Sudan Executive Order”) to revoke in six months’ time the sanctions provisions of Executive Orders 13067 and 13412, which form the basis for US sanctions targeting Sudan, which are implemented through the Sudanese Sanctions Regulations (“SSR”). The provisions of the Sudan Executive Order that will terminate these US sanctions against Sudan will go into effect on July 12, 2017, provided the Government of Sudan continues the positive progress it has made in the past six months.
