Rep. Bass Statement On Recent Reported Coup Attempt In Sudan

July 12, 2019
Press Release
Today, Rep. Karen Bass, Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, issued the following statement after reports emerged of a coup attempt by various factions of the military.

"I’m discouraged by recent reports of an attempted coup d’état by some of the Sudanese military forces.  I urge the Transitional Military Council and the Forces for Freedom and Change to stay the course of the July 5th agreement of a joint sovereign council that will ultimately lead to elections and a civilian-led government.  The U.S. and its international partners will continue to assist in this process in ensuring that the Sudanese people receive the change and freedom they desire.”
