We have been concerned by events in Guinea and regret the loss of life resulting from clashes between protesters and security forces. In conjunction with international partners, our ambassador in Conakry has made several representations to the Guinean Government expressing our concern and hope that all the issues can be resolved in a way acceptable to all. We note, and welcome, the lifting of martial law on 23 February and an ending to the strike. We will continue to monitor the situation closely. We are also keeping the consular situation under close review.
