The official spokesman of the European Union for the Middle East and North Africa, Luis Bueno, published a photo on his Twitter account, on Friday, showing the Sudanese flag flying near the Union building in the Belgian capital, Brussels.
“We raised the Sudanese flag in the European Union to honor the Sudanese people, and to express our support for the aspirations of the Sudanese,” Bueno said.
“We support efforts by the international community to return to the democratic path led by civilians,” he added.
On the other hand, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights called today, Friday, for the military leaders in Sudan to “return their position” after seizing power last week.
Commissioner Michelle Bachelet’s statements came during an emergency session on the situation in Sudan at the Human Rights Council in Geneva.
Bachelet said that the army’s seizure of power in Sudan on October 25 is worrying.
It called on the armed forces, military police and security to stop using lethal force, which it said had caused at least 13 civilian deaths so far.
“I urge Sudan’s military leaders and their supporters to step back, to allow the country to return to the path of progress towards institutional and legal reforms,” she added in her speech to the council.
