Mr. Toussaint Kongo also stressed the role played by the civil society organizations and associations for the normal resumption of institutions and the distribution of aid to the affected populations, emphasizing the gradual return of the country to the situation that existed before the Civil war. He added, moreover, that war criminals will be prosecuted in court, and that the disarming of militias requires time as well as important means.

The Central African Minister stressed that the challenge now is the recovery of the economy, the establishment of an emergency plan and the success of the national reconciliation, calling upon Morocco to help his country succeed in this transitional phase, and reiterating, at the same time, his country’s thanks to His Majesty the King for giving his High Instructions to build a multidisciplinary University hospital, in Bangui.

For his part, Mr. Mezouar said that Morocco will spare no effort to provide the necessary support to the Central African Republic to achieve this transition, noting, in this regard, the High Royal Directives to provide all the support and all the needed humanitarian aid to the Central African people.

On the other hand, the Central African Foreign Minister reiterated his country's support to the Moroccanness of the Sahara, affirming that the Central African Republic has always taken a very clear position of principle on this matter, adding that his country will continue to defend Morocco’s viewpoint, which is a fair point of view, in the international Institutions and forums.

This meeting was an opportunity to reaffirm Morocco’s support and its efforts to promote peace and stability in this region, Mezouar said to the press after the meeting, on the sidelines of the 69th session of UN General Assembly.
