International organizations call for dialogue in Sudan amid coup

The UN Integrated Transition Assistance Mission in Sudan (UNITAMS) on Monday urged all Sudanese parties to return "immediately to the dialogue" and called on the security forces to release the detainees "illegally".

"I urge all parties to exercise the utmost restraint. All parties must immediately return to dialogue and participate in good faith to restore constitutional order", according to a statement from the UN mission in Sudan.

In the note he appealed "to the security forces to immediately release those who have been illegally detained or placed under house arrest" since he considered that it is "responsibility of these forces to ensure the safety and well-being of the people in their custody".

The mission crossed out in the communiqué of "unacceptable" the arrests "from the prime minister, government officials and politicians".

The Sudanese government reported today that Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok and his wife were "kidnapped" from their residence and were taken to an unknown location while a military coup was taking place in the country.

On the other hand, the Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which groups 57 countries, expressed concern about the events of the last hours in Sudan and also urged the parties to return to dialogue to save the transition in the country.

"Dialogue is the way to overcome differences in order to prioritize the supreme interest of the Sudanese people and achieve their aspirations for security, stability, development and prosperity."said the Secretary General of the OCI, Yusef al Ozaimeen, in a statement posted on the organization’s website.

Likewise, it called on the parties to "commit to the constitutional document and what was agreed regarding the transitional phase" between the military and civilians, who reached a power-sharing pact following the April 2019 overthrow of President Omar al Bashir.

After an attempted coup last month, aborted by the Army, Hamdok asserted that it was necessary "reform the military and security organs" after he accused "remnants of the regime" of Al Bashir to orchestrate the riot.

This provoked the discomfort of the military leaders and the tension has been growing since then with several demonstrations in favor and against the civilian Executive and the revolution that ended the dictatorship.
