UN Security Council to discuss attempted coup in Sudan


The UN Security Council will hold a meeting on Tuesday to discuss the situation in Sudan after the coup that overthrew the country’s transitional government.

This was announced by the UN Special Representative for Sudan Volker Perthes during a video briefing from Khartoum.

According to him, the Internet and telephone communications are currently disconnected in the country, roadblocks have been set up on the roads. The diplomat said that information about armed clashes is coming from the regions of the country.

Perthes warned of the dangers of escalating violence in the country.

The special envoy stressed the need to release those illegally detained by the Sudanese military after the putsch. Perthes also called on the Sudanese parties to maximize restraint, dialogue and a return to constitutional order.

On the morning of October 25, Sudanese Prime Minister Abdullah Hamduk and some politicians were detained by the military and taken away in an unknown direction.

The Ministry of Information of Sudan reported that the head of the Cabinet of Ministers refused to obey the putschists and therefore was arrested. His whereabouts are unknown.

In response to the actions of the putschists in the cities of Sudan, including in the capital Khartoum, protests began.
