The German government wants «a peaceful solution» to the current situation in Sudan and «one which fulfils the wish of Sudanese people for political change,» according to Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Christofer Burger, who spoke at a press conference in Berlin on Friday.
«A credible political process has to take place, which allows the transition to a civil transitional government that enjoys... Еще the trust of the people,» Burger said.
Burger added that warrants from the International Criminal Court against former Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir were still in action and must be complied by all the member states of the United Nations.
“There is a lot uncertainty at the moment about the status of Mr Bashir and his whereabouts. What is clear is that the arrest warrants that the International Criminal Court has against him on genocide and crimes against the humanity are still standing. According to the security resolution 1593 from the year 2005, all member states of the United Nations are obliged to comply with the warrants,” explained Burger.
Al-Bashir was removed from office and placed under house arrest on Thursday by the Sudanese military, after almost four months of street demonstrations calling for his resignation.
Protests calling for civilian rule have continued throughout Sudan, following the announcement of a state of emergency and a two-year period of rule via a transitional military council by Sudanese Defence Minister Ahmed Awad Ibn Auf on Thursday.
