printable version
The Community of Sant'Egidio expresses its sorrow and concern for the bloody fighting resumed in Bangui, in the Central African Republic, by bands of guerrillas that have caused dozens of casualties.
 
The Community of Sant'Egidio is committed to the process of reconciliation in that country and has recently promoted the adoption of the "Republican Pact", drawn up in Rome at the headquarters of the Community and signed in Bangui on 7 November 2013 by the highest authorities of the transition.
 
The UN Security Council, in its Resolution no. 2127 on Central Africa approved yesterday 5 December 2013, at point 7 urgently requests all parties involved in the transition process to follow up on the Republican Pact agreed "Under the auspices of the Community of Sant'Egidio".
 
The pact is defined by the UN Security Council as "a credible framework to promote inclusive national dialogue between all the political parties, social and religious, of the country".
 
The Secretary General and his "special representative" in Central Africa are asked "to take the necessary steps to assist the transitional authorities in order to strengthen and facilitate the dialogue started”.
