Mozambique – Signing of a peace agreement (6 August 2019)

France applauds the signing of the peace and reconciliation agreement between the government of Mozambique and RENAMO (Mozambican National Resistance) on August 8 in Maputo.

This historic agreement is the culmination of a process that was fully supported by the EU, a member of the international contact group, and its member states.

Along with its EU partners, France will support the implementation of this peace agreement, which will help establish a climate of calm ahead of important general elections this coming October.

France hopes that this agreement will pave the way toward the establishment of a lasting peace in Mozambique, to the benefit of its population and its economic and social development.
