Burkina Faso:

On September 25th, the United Nations (U.N.) Security Council issued a statement welcoming the reinstatement of President Michel Kafando and the transitional authorities of Burkina Faso following the recent coup. In addition to commending the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the African Union (AU) for their efforts to end the crisis and restore order in the country, the Security Council urged all political actors in Burkina Faso to refrain from violence and resume the transition process without delay.

On September 26th, U.S. National Security Advisor Susan Rice congratulated the people of Burkina Faso for their success in defending Burkinabe democracy and reinstating the transitional government. Ambassador Rice also expressed appreciation to the international partners who condemned the coup in Burkina Faso and helped prevent the country’s democratic transition from unraveling, including ECOWAS, the AU, and the U.N. Additionally, Ambassador Rice said the U.S. will continue to stand with the people of Burkina Faso as they prepare for democratic elections.
