“The Translational Military Council reaffirmed that it came in response to the Sudanese people’s desire for change, and to save the lives of the citizens, their properties, and the country’s resources; and it did not come to rule. It will only be the guarantor for a civilian government which will be formed in consultation with political forces and stakeholders. No party will be excluded from the political process, including armed groups. It also stressed that the suspension of the transitional constitution can be lifted, in addition to the possibility of shortening the transitional period depending on the developments on the ground and agreements reached among stakeholders.”

8. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Yasir Abdelsalam, Chargé d'affaires, Mission of the Republic of Sudan to the United Nations:
“I would like to reaffirm that what is happening in Sudan is a domestic matter which was carried out and continues by solely with a Sudanese will. The delicate situation that Sudan currently faces, which immensely threatens its immediate and future stability, must be taken into account. Otherwise, the democratic transformation which certainly requires time would become threatened. We cannot defeat a gradual democratic transformation, which has now started its journey, in the name of the same democracy.”

STORYLINE
Sudanese ambassador Yasir Abdelsalam said the Translational Military Council in his country “reaffirmed that it came in response to the Sudanese people’s desire for change, and to save the lives of the citizens, their properties, and the country’s resources; and it did not come to rule.”

Addressing the Security Council today (12 Apr), Abdelsalam said the Translational Military Council decided to oust President Omar Al Bashir, suspend the constitution, disband the Government and State Governments, and to declare a three-month state of emergency. He stressed that these measures “were taken in response to the demands of the crowds of Sudanese people who have expressed their opinions and aspirations, in line with the history, inheritance, and struggle of the honourable Sudanese people.”

The Sudanese ambassador said the Council would act as a “guarantor for a civilian government which will be formed in consultation with political forces and stakeholders.” He underscored that no party would be excluded from the political process, “including armed groups.”

Abdelsalam said the suspension of the transitional constitution could be “lifted, in addition to the possibility of shortening the transitional period depending on the developments on the ground and agreements reached among stakeholders.”
