Mise en garde des Etats-Unis sur la Guinée

Nov 11, 2011

Le Département d'Etat avertit les citoyens Américains des risques en Guinée en raison de la situation politique qui reste imprévisible. Selon Washington, «la Guinée a été relativement calme depuis que le président démocratiquement élu a pris ses fonctions en Décembre 2010».

L’administration du Président Barack Obama a récemment réitéré sa volonté de soutenir le gouvernement Guinéen à renforcer la démocratie par l’organisation des élections législatives libres et transparentes. Mais, les Etats-Unis sont pessimistes sur l’organisation des élections cette année.

«Si l’élection prévue à la fin de l’année est repoussée ce qui est probable, les manifestations pacifiques pourront se transformer en manifestations violentes », note la diplomatie américaine dans un communiqué du 4 novembre 2011, transmis à AfricaLog.com.

Les citoyens Américains vivants en Guinée sont appelés à rester vigilants.

November 4, 2011

The Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the risks of travel to Guinea because
the political situation there remains unpredictable. This replaces the Travel
Warning of December 03, 2010, to update information on the political situation and
accompanying security issues.
Although Guinea has been relatively calm since the democratically elected President
took office in December 2010, hotly contested elections to the legislature are
scheduled for December 29, 2011. Large crowds of demonstrators representing
partisans of various opposition parties are likely to periodically gather at
thoroughfares around the capital. If the scheduled election cycle is delayed or
postponed, which seems likely, political rhetoric could turn peaceful demonstrations
into violent ones.
U.S. citizens are urged to exercise caution, to be particularly alert to their
surroundings, and to avoid crowds, demonstrations, or any other form of public
gathering. Visitors to Guinea should be familiar with their hotel evacuation plans,
policies, or procedures.
U.S. citizens in Guinea should carry their travel documents (i.e., passport, birth
certificate, picture ID, etc.) with them at all times. Additionally, U.S. citizens
in Guinea are reminded to stay in contact with friends and family in the United
States to keep them apprised of their current welfare and whereabouts.
All U.S. citizens traveling to or remaining in Guinea despite this Travel Warning
are strongly urged to enroll in the State Department’s Smart Traveler Enrollment
Program (STEP) to receive the most up-to-date security information. Remember to
keep all of your information in STEP up to date. It is important during enrollment
or updating your information to include your current phone number and current email
address where you can be reached in case of emergency.
The U.S. Embassy is located on the Transversale No. 2, Centre Administratif de
Koloma, opposite the New Radio Station in Ratoma, Conakry, Guinea. You can call the
Embassy switchboard at +224-65-10-4000, or reach the consular section directly by
calling +224-67-10-4444. For after-hours emergencies, please call +224-67-10-4311."
