Equatorial Guinea’s Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration represented President Obiang Nguema Mbasogo at the 6th Extraordinary Summit of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) to discuss the ongoing conflict in the Central African Republic.

The Summit was held in N’Djamena, Chad and focused on finding solutions to the political, economic and social instability that plagues the Central African Republic. After thorough deliberation among the participating Heads of States, several initiatives were proposed to bring peace to the country at the end of the summit.

In a final statement, the Secretary-General of the ECCAS said that the President of the Central African Republic, H.E. Michel Am Nondokro Djotodia and his Prime Minister should resign. According to the ECCAS participants, this would help promote peace and find solutions to the various problems within the country.
