António Guterres is Secretary-General of the UN.

The United Nations Secretary-General has called on Sudan’s military to release the prime minister and “all other officials” immediately, in a Twitter post which condemned the coup.

He said that the constitutional charter must be respected in full, and said the citizens of Sudan have the international body’s support.

Meanwhile, there was further condemnation from the UK government.

The country’s minister for Africa tweeted that the coup was a “betrayal” of the Sudanese people and called on security forces to release the prime minister.
