UN chief voices concern over coup in Burkina Faso

United Nations, Oct 2 (TIWN) UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has expressed deep concern over the situation in Burkina Faso following a coup that ousted President Paul-Henri Sandaogo Damiba.

“The secretary-general expresses his full support for regional efforts toward a swift return to constitutional order in the country. Burkina Faso needs peace, stability and unity to fight terrorist groups and criminal networks operating in parts of the country,” said the statement.  Guterres also reaffirmed the commitment of the United Nations to accompany the people of Burkina Faso in their efforts toward durable peace and stability.  Friday’s coup was the second this year in Burkina Faso. In the one on Jan. 24, President Roch Kabore was overthrown, and Damiba was sworn in on Feb. 16.
