Ramaphosa welcomes signing of cease-fire agreement between rival forces in Libya

Published on

President Cyril Ramaphosa has released a statement confirming his welcome of the signing of the cease-fire agreement between Libya’s rival forces, amid his continued silence on other pertinent issues.

The presidency released a statement on Sunday, 25 October 2020, on the signing of the cease-fire agreement between rival forces in Libya. The statement was released in his capacity as the African Union (AU) Chairperson and as the president of the country.

The statement comes on the back of continued calls for the AU to address the contentious matters that have gripped international headlines in recent weeks, such as the ongoing unrest in Nigeria and the suggested genocide in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). However, the AU has not publicly addressed the matters to date, nor has it publicly and formally acknowledged the mounting calls for intervention.

In the statement, Ramaphosa was quoted as saying, “Guided by the spirit of fraternity and the principles of solidarity and cooperation, the AU stands ready to accompany the Libyan people on this journey towards peace, national reconciliation and unity.”
