Freedoms for the Sudanese people: Troika statement
The UK, US and Norway recently (29 June 2019) issued a Troika statement outlining that the people of Sudan should have the right to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly.
UK, US and Norway statement on Freedoms in Sudan:
The Sudanese people have a right to freedom of expression and freedom of peaceful assembly. The Transitional Military Council should respect these rights, permit peaceful protests, and avoid any use of violence.
The Troika continues to support the demand of the Sudanese people for a peaceful, agreed transition towards democracy in Sudan.
We also support the ongoing African Union-Ethiopian mediation. We call on the Transitional Military Council and the Forces for Freedom and Change to engage constructively with the African Union-Ethiopian proposal to achieve a peaceful democratic transition through the formation of a civilian-led transitional government. Such a transition will help stabilise the country and enable the Troika and other partners to work with the Government of Sudan to address the country’s economic challenges.
