As we made clear alongside Troika partners (US
and Norway) on 4 June, we condemn the violent attacks by Sudanese security forces against peaceful protestors in Sudan last week, which left many civilians dead or injured. The Foreign Secretary
reiterated this in his statement on 6 June, which also called for the full restoration of the internet and freedom of the media. The UK
has called for the human rights of all Sudanese people to be respected and for the resumption of the political process with the protestors and the opposition
, and an agreed transfer of power to a civilian-led government, as demanded by the Sudanese people, in a swift, orderly and peaceful manner. On 6 June, I summoned the Sudanese Ambassador to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office
to express the grave concerns of the United Kingdom at the use of violence against civilians by the Sudanese authorities.
