Press Statement

Conakry, October 28, 2019

For Immediate Release

The United States would like to congratulate the people of Guinea for the peaceful marches of October 23 and 24.  Thanks to the hard work and cooperation of all sides, Guineans were able to express their beliefs in a non-violent and civil manner.  We encourage continued dialogue to address the country’s political questions.  We believe the release of those detained and a comprehensive investigation for the violence and deaths that took place the week of October 14 are necessary steps forward for Guinea.
