TOKYO: Japan strongly condemned the Sudanese security and armed forces’ actions of detaining prime minister Hamdok and other senior government officials and opening fire on the anti-military demonstrators, leaving many casualties.
“The government of Japan is deeply concerned about Sudan’s situation and condemns dissolving the Transitional Government by the arms forces,” an official statement by the foreign ministry said. “Such actions undermine the transition to civilian rule based on the Constitutional Declaration.”
Japan called for an immediate, safe, and unconditional release of Prime Minister Hamdok and other detained senior government officials.
“Japan closely cooperates with the international community and calls for the restoration of transition to civilian rule in Sudan,” the statement said.
