Central African Republic: the road map for peace is being implemented

The road map for peace in the Central African Republic was signed in Luanda, the capital of Angola, in September 2021, under the auspices of the International Conference for the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR). This visit took place at a time when this roadmap is being implemented.

The Rwandan Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Secretary of State for foreign relations of Angola, responsible for monitoring the road map for peace in the Central African Republic, were visiting the country on Friday, January 14, to take stock of its implementation.

As part of this visit, the officials assessed the situation in the Central African Republic, after a year of efforts undertaken by the government of President FaustinArchangeTouadérato promote peace and preserve the security of the population.

It should be noted that over the past year, the Central African Republic has already managed to restore security stability, after an intense electoral period, during which several armed groups sowed violence throughout the country, refusing to follow the terms of the peace agreement signed in Khartoum.

At present, most of the country’s territory is under the full control of the government, thanks to the government army (FACA), which was able to confront all the armed groups that were preparing to seize power in the country.

It should be noted that in recent months, the militants of the Unity for Peace in the Central African Republic (UPC), have begun to lay down their arms en masse and voluntarily, and this can be a completely peaceful solution to the issue, and this after realizing that their leaders were looking only for their personal interests and the destruction of the civilian population and the country in general.

It is clear that the ongoing efforts of the current president of the Central African Republic must bear fruit, and according to the latest developments in the country, President Touadera is trying to organize a republican dialogue with the opposition, but precisely because of the opposition that makes this republican dialogue impossible, it has not yet taken place.

In the context of talking about the country’s current events, we often see the Western media disparaging all those who work for the Central African Republic, President Touadera himself and the partners of the Central African Republic such as the Russian Federation and Rwanda, and manipulating public opinion through its misinformation, and this is exactly what made the headlines of the latest articles of the French newspaper (RFI) on this issue.

However, despite all the sanctions that stand in front of the Central African Republic as an impenetrable barrier to development, the latter is still confidently moving towards peace and sustainable development.
