The U.S. hasn’t lifted economic sanctions against Sudan on telecommunications and other technology sectors since the Trump administration announced last October that it would partially lift sanctions against Sudan, the country’s telecommunications minister Ibrahim El-Mirghani told reporters in the capital Khartoum.

El-Mirghani says the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control has refused to lift telecommunications and technology sanctions against his country and that it’s in contact with “many concerned bodies” in the U.S. to “fully” lift the sanctions and to “allow our telecommunications sector to get the benefit of that.”
The Trump administration decided to partially lift the sanctions, which were imposed in 1997, against Sudan last fall but the country hasn’t been able to integrate itself with the global financial system because it is still on a U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism. In response, Sudanese officials said Sudan is fully cooperating with the U.S. in the fight against terror.

South Africa: Unions Demand Further Reform for Public Workers

 

The discussion over public sector wages comes after the National Assembly passed three amendment bills to labor laws on May 29.

The South African Federation of Trade Unions (SAFTU) announced in a press conference Tuesday that it will continue to reject a public sector wage agreement with the country’s Public Service Coordinating Bargaining Council (PSCBC) for what they call a “savage attack on the living standards of public servants.”

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, though not sure how it will affect anyone reading about it in America.
