The advisor to the Sudanese army commander said that those who uphold the “no partnership, no negotiation, no legitimacy, no bargaining” slogans, have attacked the military’s legitimacy, and described them them as being deceived, while accusing the recent mass demonstrations of being violent.
Brigadier-General al-Taher Abu Haja, advisor to the Sudanese army commander and 25th October coup orchestrator Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, said that those who uphold the “Three No’s slogan” [no partnership, no negotiation, no legitimacy for or with the military] are deceived into working against “their country, against democracy and against the stability of the transitional period.”
He added that their goal was to inflame strife and slander the armed forces and the security forces as enemies of the people, “to escape the elections and appeal to the people’s opinion through the ballot boxes, not the mobilization and demonstration.”
The Sudanese revolutionary street has raised the Three No’s in the face of the coup military council since the coup on October 25.
Abu Haja said that targeting the armed forces and other regular forces is targeting the national security and unity of Sudan.
The advisor said in the Thursday press statement that targeting the armed forces and other regular forces constitutes as targeting the national security and unity of Sudan.
He considered that what is happening was a” blatant departure from peace” and “those who kill are not seekers of peace or freedom, but are motivated by fire and the dismemberment of this country.”
He believed that the silent majority in Sudan stands behind the armed forces and other regular forces and supports them in order to protect the transitional period.
On Thursday, the security authorities in Sudan, led by Abdel-Fattah a-Burhan, suppressed the peaceful demonstrations using live bullets, tear gas, rubber bullets, sound bombs and batons.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Interior announced that a police officer with the rank of brigadier was killed in the capital, Khartoum, while “securing the January 13 processions” – according to a government statement.
