From allAfrica, February 2, 2011:

American administration and the Sudanese government have agreed on a roadmap to improve bilateral relations, said the visiting U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wednesday after a meeting with the Sudanese Vice-President.

Flanked by Scott Gration US President Special Envoy to Sudan, James B. Steinberg held a series of meetings with several Sudanese officials in Khartoum including Vice President Ali Osman Taha, Presidential Assistant Nafei Ali Nafei, Minister of Foreign Affairs Ali Karti and Presidential Adviser for Security Affairs, Salah Gosh.

Steinberg’s visit takes place as Karti has just returned from Washington where he met with the U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to discuss the lift of economic sanctions but also Sudan’s removal from the U.S. list of countries sponsoring terrorism.

After the run of a successful referendum, Obama’s administration seeks to achieve successfully agreements on outstanding and post referendum issues before the proclamation of a new state in southern Sudan next July.
