Statement by Assistant Secretary Tibor Nagy on Guinea’s Elections

October 17, 2020

I spoke with President Alpha Condé and Cellou Dalein Diallo yesterday to stress the importance of a free, fair, inclusive, and peaceful electoral process. The U.S. encourages all Guineans, regardless of political affiliation, to refrain from violence and respect each other’s rights.

As a longtime friend of Guinea, I have seen firsthand the strength of the Guinean people and am confident that working together Guineans can build together a more secure, prosperous, democratic future.
