US created the environment in Sudan for military coup: Journalist

The United States created the political atmosphere in Sudan that led to the military coup in the central African country, according to an expert.

African American journalist Abayomi Azikiwe, editor at the Pan-African News Wire, warned in an interview with Press TV on Tuesday that there is no solution to the African crisis as along as imperialist countries continue to interfere in the internal affairs of these countries.

The United States on Monday expressed “alarm” over the coup in Sudan that happened shortly after Washington’s special envoy for the Horn of Africa landed in the country.

The Biden administration claimed that US Special Envoy Jeffrey Feltman was in Sudan to encourage cooperation between civilian and military leaders of Khartoum’s transitional government.

“The US is deeply alarmed at reports of a military take-over of the transitional government. This would contravene the Constitutional Declaration and the democratic aspirations of the Sudanese people and is utterly unacceptable,” Feltman said on Monday.

“As we have said repeatedly, any changes to the transitional government by force puts at risk US assistance,” he added.

US, Israeli link in Sudan military takeover

The Sudanese army general who stage-managed his country’s normalization of diplomatic ties with Israel swept aside the civilian part of Sudan’s government in a coup that has been a long time coming.

As is the case with almost all military coups in the Arab world, the state-run Television of Sudan suddenly cut off regular programming on Monday morning and started airing national songs before airing a televised statement read by General Abdul Fattah al-Burhan who has been a key player in Sudanese politics ever since the overthrow of former dictator Omar al-Bashir in April 2019.

The influential general announced the dissolution of the transition cabinet of ministers led by Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok. He also dissolved a ruling body known as the Sovereign Council and declared a state of emergency that entails curfews.
