Central Africa: the military operations in the country ended

Central African Republic President Faustin-Archange Touadera on Friday declared a unilateral cessation of fighting against armed groups, saying he hoped it would lead to peaceful dialogue.

“It is to give peace a chance that I am here to announce to you this evening the end of military operations and all armed action on the whole of the national territory,” said Touadera, stating that the move would take effect at midnight.

He welcomed the promise made by the leaders of armed groups to stop all armed actions on national territory, rejected all plots and pledges to destabilize the institutions of the Republic and confine their fighters for disarmament, demobilization, reintegration and reform.
