This paper looks at the Sudanese regime's foreign policy agenda and its sponsorship of radical groups in its initial years in power. It discusses the regime's revolutionary pan-Islamist ideology and the belief that Sudan should take a prominent role in Islamic revivalism. These issues have led to the isolation of Sudan at the regional and international levels and have crippled the state's ability to further its national interests. The paper explores the ongoing implications of the regime's early radical policies. It describes the critical period when the underpinnings for current developments in Sudan were established.
