Central African Republic – Meeting of the International Contact Group (Addis Ababa, July 7, 2014)
France welcomes the new momentum in support of political dialogue in the Central African Republic initiated by the meeting of the International Contact Group in Addis Ababa on July 7.
The forthcoming organization of a forum in Brazzaville, under the auspices of President Sassou Nguesso and in collaboration with the UN, the African Union and the Economic Community of Central African States, should make it possible to bring together all actors involved in the transition process in order to make progress toward peace and national reconciliation.
We continue to support the efforts of the transitional authorities of the Central African Republic aimed at putting the country back on the path toward stability and reconstruction. We notably encourage them to continue their efforts to hold, in the near future, free and transparent elections which will mark the conclusion of the transition period.
