Statement Attributable to the Spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General on the Peace and Reconciliation Caravan in the Central African Republic

 

NEW YORK, November 15, 2011/African Press Organization (APO)/ — The Secretary-General welcomes the launch today, in the Central African Republic, of a Peace and Reconciliation Caravan in conflict-affected areas in the northeast of the country. He commends this effort to reduce tensions and promote reconciliation and peaceful coexistence between local communities. He hopes all key parties will build on this important exercise to further consolidate peace in the country. The United Nations stands ready to continue to support such efforts.

The Secretary-General recalls the cease-fire agreement signed in Bangui on 8 October 2011 between the Convention des patriotes pour la justice et la paix and the Union des forces démocratiques pour le rassemblement, following deadly clashes in the same region. He urges the parties to implement all provisions of the agreement, which was facilitated by the Mediator of the Republic and the Government of the Central African Republic with the support of the United Nations, the African Union, the Economic Community of Central African States and its peacekeeping operation, MICOPAX, as well as the Government of Chad.
