The army’s “coup” against the government in Sudan sparked international reactions, after news of the arrest of ministers and officials, in addition to the Prime Minister, Abdullah Hamdok, amid anti-protests.
The High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security, Josep Borrell, announced that the Union is following the current events in Sudan with “grave concern”.
On his Twitter account, Josep Borrell said: “We are following the current events in Sudan with great concern.”
“The EU calls on all stakeholders and regional partners to put the transition back on track,” he added.
For his part, the US special envoy to Sudan, Jeffrey Feltman, expressed his grave concern about reports of the military coup.
In a statement carried by “Reuters”, he indicated that the United States is deeply concerned about reports of a military takeover of the transitional government in Sudan.
Feltman warned that a military takeover would contravene Sudan’s constitutional declaration and endanger US aid to the country.
The British Special Envoy to Sudan, Robert Fairweather, also expressed his “deep concern” over reports that the military had arrested civilian members of the Sudanese government, pointing out that “any such step would be a betrayal of the revolution, the transition and the Sudanese people.”
This said Volker Peretz, Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations in Sudan, “The international organization is deeply concerned about reports of a coup in Sudan, and attempts to undermine the political transition process.”
On the Arab level, the Secretary-General of the League of Arab States, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, expressed deep concern about the developments in Sudan and called on all Sudanese parties to abide by the constitutional document signed in 2019.
