CAIRO – 9 September 2021: Egypt is following up the accelerated developments in Guinea with deep concern, asserting the seriousness of the ongoing crisis in the African country.

In a statement released by the Foreign Ministry, Monday, Cairo called on all parties in Guinea to exercise self-restraint and abide by peaceful ways and dialogue to settle the crisis in the country in order to reach up to safe shores.

The Egyptian Embassy in Conakry also called on all Egyptian expats located in Guinea to take the utmost care and caution and to stay inside their homes, as well as to avoid all areas of armed clashes taking place in a number of central areas.

The United States condemned the violence taking place in Guinea, calling on all parties to engage in dialogue.

US Department of State Spokesperson Ned Price said in a statement, Sunday night "Violence and any extra-constitutional measures will only erode Guinea's prospects for peace, stability and prosperity. These actions could limit the ability of the United States and Guinea's other international partners to support the country as it navigates a path towards national unity and a brighter future for the Guinean people."

On Sunday, Guinean authorities said that the presidential palace has been attacked by rebels, who announced that they had captured the state's president Alpha Conde. The armed group leader, Mamady Doumbouya, announced the dissolution of the government along with nationwide curfew in the country.
