HM The King Holds Phone Conversation With French President
PERSISMA – As part of the regular contacts between the two heads of state, HM King Mohammed VI held, on Tuesday, a phone conversation with His Excellency François Hollande, President of France, on the latest developments of the situation in the Central African Republic, a statement by the royal office said.
The two leaders shared their concern over the alarming deterioration of security, the worsening of the humanitarian crisis and the exacerbation of interfaith tensions in this brotherly African country, the same source added.
In addition to deploying military contingents, in which Morocco and France are contributing, the two heads of state insisted on the pressing need to create conditions propitious for an inclusive dialogue that enables all segments of the Central African Republic people to achieve national concord and initiate a peaceful democratic transition process within the framework of national unity.
The source said that HM the King underlined that, armed with his historical relations with all sectarian and political components of the Central African Republic, Morocco intends to actively contribute to efforts aimed at establishing peace and public order in this country and stopping the spiral of attacks and retaliations with a sectarian aspect which target the population, mainly the Muslim community, which is a very worrying and unusual fact in the African continent.
HM the King and the French president underlined the importance of a balanced, non discriminatory protection for all religious and ethnic communities in the Central African Republic.
