US 'strongly condemns' military takeover in Sudan: Blinken
WASHINGTON, Oct 26, 2021 (BSS/AFP) - The United States said Monday it
"strongly condemns" Sudan's military for its recent government takeover, and
called for the immediate return to civilian rule and the release of the
detained prime minister.
"The United States strongly condemns the actions of the Sudanese military
forces," Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement, as he
expressed grave concern about reports that security forces used live
ammunition against protesters.
"We firmly reject the dissolution of the civilian-led transitional
government and its associated institutions and call for their immediate
restoration," Blinken said.
