We remain deeply concerned about the situation in Guinea-Bissau following the coup d’état there on
We welcome the regional leadership shown by the Economic Community of West African States, and are working with them, the Africa Union, the Community of Portuguese Language Countries and the UN to ensure we maintain a coherent, unified response. Co-ordinated action will be vital in sending a clear signal to the military that the international community will not accept coups d’état, and in ensuring a return to constitutional order in Guinea-Bissau.
