NEWSROOM (ADV) – The United Nations and the African Union (AU) on Saturday called on stakeholders to support the implementation of the Khartoum peace agreement between the Central African government and 14 armed groups after 10 days of talks.

“Let us mobilize to support the implementation of the peace agreement”, tweeted the UN Assistant Secretary General for Peace Operations, Jean-Pierre Lacroix, following the announcement of the conclusion of the agreement of peace sponsored by Russia and the Sudanese government.

“This is a great day for CAR (Central African Republic) and for all the Central African people,” said Smail Chergui, the AU Commissioner for Peace and Security, quoted by MINUSCA. The AU senior official called on all Central Africans to support this agreement, which he said will enable “the people of the Central African Republic to embark on the path of reconciliation, harmony and development”.

Head of the Central African government delegation to the Khartoum talks, Firmin Ngrebad, said he was determined “to work with the Head of State and his government to implement the answers to the concerns of the brothers who took up arms.”
