DUBAI (Reuters) – Saudi Arabia is working on removing Sudan from the United States’ list of state sponsors of terrorism, a foreign ministry tweet said on Sunday.

Saudi Arabia is also working on initiating investments in Sudan and improving existing projects, the tweet said, adding that Sudan is working on supporting Saudi Arabia in international forums, providing an environment for investment and expanding its agricultural sector.
