STORYLINE
In a statement issued by his spokesperson’s office, UN chief Antonio Guterres recalled his previous “encouragement and expectation that the democratic aspiration of the Sudanese people will be realized through an appropriate and inclusive transition process.”

Speaking to reporters in New York today (11 Apr), UN spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric said the Secretary-General continued to follow the developments in Sudan very closely and reiterated “his call for calm and utmost restraint by all.” He said the Secretary-General reaffirmed that the United Nations “stands ready to support the Sudanese people as they chart a new way forward.”

Asked if the new authorities should hand over President Omar Al Bashir to the International Criminal Court (ICC), Dujarric said the UN was not in a position to comment on the issuance and execution of ICC warrants in specific areas but added that the UN “routinely called and will continue to call for Member States to have full cooperation with the ICC.”

He said the main UN message at this point was “calm and restraint.” He stressed that the Secretary-General expects that the democratic aspirations of the Sudanese people will be realised through an appropriate and inclusive transition process.” He noted, however, that “obviously the situation remains fluid, and we will continue to watch it.”
