Minister for Africa Vicky Ford:

"The UK condemns the coup d’etat by military forces in Burkina Faso.

"We call for the immediate, safe and unconditional release of all members of the civilian government who have been detained, including the President of Burkina Faso, Roch Marc Christian Kaboré.

"It is vital that all parties remain calm and respect human rights, and for Burkina Faso to return to democratic civilian and constitutional rule without delay.

"Dialogue between all parties is required to tackle insecurity across Burkina Faso, and respond to the needs of the Burkinabe people.

"The UK stands with our partners in addressing these developments, including ECOWAS, the African Union and the G5 Sahel."
