Sudanese Foreign Minister Ali Karti denounced the United States, describing it as "hypocritical and weak and Machiavellian" and controlled by "a few Jews."
He stated this in response to the US extending sanctions against Sudan for the 15th consecutive year.
Speaking on state radio, Karti described the United States as "hypocritical and Machiavellian and weak," pointing out that the US has issued contradictory statements about Sudan. In recent years the US has praised Sudan as cooperative in the fight against terrorism has commended President Omar al-Bashir's position on the peace agreements with South Sudan.
Karti added that America shows weakness because it is "in the control of a few Jews in the decision-making centers." He stressed that Sudan has nothing to do with terrorism and had no plans to harm U.S. interests.
