Press Statement

On October 23, 2009, the United States imposed restrictions on travel to the United States by certain members of the military junta and the government, as well as other individuals who support policies or actions that undermine the restoration of democracy and the rule of law in Guinea.

The citizens of Guinea deserve the right to choose their own leaders after decades of authoritarian rule. The military junta in power has shown itself disrespectful of human rights and incapable of shepherding Guinea through a peaceful transition to democracy.
