Uttalande av utrikesminister Margot Wallström om läget i Burkina Faso


The forceful detention of President Kafando and Prime Minister Zida and other ministers in Burkina Faso is unacceptable and violates the legitimate demands of the Burkinabe people for a peaceful and democratic transition.

It is imperative that free and fair elections are held as scheduled on 11 October 2015. Sweden remains a long term partner to the people of Burkina Faso and supports the electoral process with approximately 4,5 Million Euro channeled through the UN system as well as through civil society organisations.
