Congo: CAR delegation in Brazzaville to prepare Bangui forum

Brazzaville, Congo (PANA) - A delegation from the Central African Republic (CAR) has begun a visit to Congo to meet CAR refugees in the country, within the framework of the preparations for the Bangui forum, due to hold in February, Congolese public radio reported Thursday.

The mission is within the framework of the basic consultations, decided as one of the three stages agreed during the Brazzaville forum in July.

The two other stages are the cessation of hostilities in a bid to allow the free movement of people and goods all over the territory and the Bangui forum with the goal of preparing for the electoral process that should mark the end of the transition.

The delegation visiting Congo is chaired by the Minister of Waters, Forests and Fishing, Mrs Charlotte Isabelle Gaudeuille.

According to Mrs Gaudeuille, the same consultations will be held all over the CAR territory and in neighbouring countries, including in Democratic Republic of Congo, Cameroon and Chad.

Congo Brazzaville, whose president Denis Sassou-Nguesso is the mediator and holds carries presidency of the international contact group on the CAR crisis, hosts the largest number of CAR refugees.
