The United States strongly condemns this week’s violence and calls on Captain Sanogo and the Committee for the Restoration of Democracy (CNRD) to stand aside immediately and allow for the restoration of civilian rule. We call on Mali’s soldiers to return to their roles as defenders of Mali’s constitution.
The United States will remain alert to any efforts – civilian or military – to deprive Mali’s citizens of a speedy return to stable, democratic government. We will continue to pursue sanctions on members of the CNRD and others, military and civilian, who seek to undermine this process.
