Sudanese officials have heard such talk before. They accuse the United States of repeatedly changing conditions for better relations.

“The U.S. has been accused of constantly moving the goalposts, repeatedly changing the conditions on which we would move, for example, on removing Sudan from the list of state sponsors of terrorism or for supporting debt relief,” Mr. Lyman said, acknowledging the criticism.

“Each time we have been prepared to move forward to improve our relations, war and widespread human rights violations have impeded our efforts.”
