U.S. to Delay Imposition of Additional Sudan Sanctions
Reuters reports today that the U.S. has announced that it will delay the imposition of additional sanctions on Sudan "as a courtesy to the (U.N.) Secretary General." The article reports that the additional sanctions being contemplated are:
the addition of 29 Sudanese companies, most of them involved in oil revenues, to a current U.S. sanctions list of about 130 firms.
Washington also planned to further limit dollar transactions from Sudanese companies and to slap travel and banking bans on three individuals, including a rebel leader seen as "obstructionist."
