12. SOUNDBITE (French) Jean-Pierre Lacroix, Head of the United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations:
"It is important to go to the field in Bria, outside of Bangui, in a place that has experienced and still experiences difficulties and traumas, many displaced people, to meet the population and tell them that today we are aware of their difficulties and traumas but at the same time, there is hope. A page can open at the beginning of the year 2019 which will hopefully see the return of peace in the Central African Republic, including the opening of the dialogue under the auspices of the African Union on January 24.”

STORYLINE:

Aiming to shore up support for the resumption of dialogue in the Central African Republic, the top United Nations peacekeeping official today (11 Jan) met with community leaders in Bria.

Jean-Pierre Lacroix stressed the importance of speaking with traumatized people beyond the country’s capital, Bangui. Following a visit to an informal camp for internally displaced persons located outside of the compound of the UN peacekeeping mission (MINUSCA), he said a new page could be opened “which will hopefully see the return of peace in the Central African Republic.”

Lacroix spoke on the fourth day of his visit to the country, where the government and armed groups are aiming to reach agreement.

Their dialogue will resume on 24 January in Khartoum under the auspices of the African Union.
