KHARTOUM, Sept. 3 (Xinhua) -- Sudan's Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok on Tuesday reiterated the importance of removing Sudan from the U.S. list of countries "sponsoring terrorism."

"Sudan must be removed from the list of countries sponsoring terrorism and we expect progress in this regard soon," said Hamdok when meeting with the visiting German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas.

"The economic challenge is big, but it can be tackled," said Hamdok, noting that "we need to address the deterioration in the exchange price, stop inflation and restore confidence in the banking sector."

Maas, for his part, promised to discuss the issue of removing Sudan from the list of countries sponsoring terrorism at the world level, noting that the Sudanese government needs to exert efforts to achieve that.

He vowed that Germany would continue supporting Sudan, urging the international community to support Sudan's endeavors to improve its economy.

Maas' visit is considered the first of its kind for a senior German official to Sudan since 2011.
