UN Secretary-General’s remarks at the Security Council stakeout – on Burkina Faso

Secretary-General: I am deeply concerned with the recent coup d’état in Burkina Faso.  The role of the military must be to defend their countries and their peoples, not to attack their governments and to fight for power.  
We have, unfortunately in the region, terrorist groups, we have threats to international peace and security. My appeal is for the armies of these countries to assume their professional role of armies, to protect their countries and re-establish democratic institutions.
