There are hopes that the crisis in the Central African Republic may end with the signing of agreements in Libreville, Gabon, on Friday.

Representatives of the government, the Séléka coalition of rebel groups, the opposition and civil society from the Central African Republic met in the Gabonese capital this week for talks to end the conflict in their country.

The current crisis started in December last year when the Séléka launched an offensive against the government and occupied several towns and cities.

To find out more about the agreements, UN Radio's Derrick Mbatha spoke with the top UN envoy in the Central African Republic, Margaret Vogt, who attended the talks in Libreville.
