A crisis in Sudan after a military coup against Omar al-Bashir should be overcome peacefully through “national conciliation,” President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on April 11, adding that Turkey supports the continuation of “deep-rooted” relations with the African country.
“It is my most important wish that Sudan will survive this process on the basis of national reconciliation and peace,” Erdoğan said at a joint press conference with Burkina Faso’s President Roch Marc Christian Kabore.
“It is my wish that Sudan will succeed this issue within a fraternity network and enter the normal democratic process,” the president said.
It was not possible at the moment to clarify the whereabouts of Bashir, he said. “But I wish them to survive this period in peace.”
“Because these countries have suffered from such blows, and every blow is a very serious blood loss. I don’t really want our friendly brother Sudan to be subjected to this,” the president stated.
Kabore, for his part, said: “We cannot support coup attempts” and noted that coups would stand on trial in democratic systems. Kabore said they “condemn” the military coup against Bashir.
