US President Joe Biden announced his intent to nominate John Godfrey as a full-time ambassador to Sudan, ending more than two decades of under-representation at its Mission in Khartoum.

Axar.az reports that thursday’s announcement means that a full ambassador, once approved by the Senate, will be in Khartoum for the first time in 24 years. Those years saw Khartoum largely managed by diplomats of the rank of Chargé d'Affaires whose powers were often limited.

In its statement, the White House stated that US President Joe Biden also nominated John Godfrey to be Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Sudan and Michael Adler as ambassador to South Sudan.

An experienced diplomat on Middle East issues, having served there before, his nomination is for Sudan since1996 when the US cut diplomatic ties with Sudan then under ousted President Omar al-Bashir whom it accused of supporting al-Qaeda and its then-leader Osama bin Laden.
