The General Coordination of the FPRC applauds the significant advances of the Khartoum peace agreement signed on February 6th, 2014 in Bangui, symbolized by recent salutary and saving visits of our peace allies.
The FPRC calls on all Central African compatriots to be restrained and calm, to put their country and differences a posteriori, to admit political failures and to appropriate the agreement as a tool for reform.
The FPRC regrets negative actions under the pretext of foolishness and notes the lack of patriotic love and civility of some compatriots.
The FPRC calls on the Government and our peace partners to urgently put in place the National Implementation and Monitoring Committee of the Peace Agreement to guarantee the agreement.
The FPRC calls all Central African citizens to respect the institutions and the laws of the Republic because the time is not the challenge of these institutions but the reconstruction. Let's build a country and not a profit.
The FPRC asks all Central Africans to unite around the Central African Peace Coalition led by President TOADERA and his Government to take the trouble, to double their courage and vigilance to achieve the long-awaited wonder, the rebirth of the Central African Republic worthy and prosperous.
