Statements by the HR/VP


Developments in Burkina Faso, including the unlawful detention of the interim President and other ministers, endanger the transition and the road to elections on 11 October.
Any attempt to depose the transitional authorities by force and any action threatening the peace and security of the country have been condemned by the international community as a whole.

The EU calls for the immediate release of the detainees and for the transition and the public interest to be respected.

It supports ongoing efforts by representatives of the United Nations, the African Union and ECOWAS to achieve this aim.
