The Parisian consultations ended yesterday afternoon in the afternoon.

Eighteen groups participated, eventually agreeing to take part in the national dialogue.

Preliminary discussions between the authorities and the politico-military groups must nevertheless take place first.

And other conditions were set, reports Allamine Bourma Treye, member of the technical committee in charge of discussions and head of the commission who came to Paris, at the microphone of Gaëlle Laleix of the Africa editorial staff.


The first is that of the general amnesty for convicted politico-soldiers, the return of confiscated property… There is the question of the release of political prisoners, including prisoners of war… There is the question of the truce, so a cease-fire is necessary to allow the serenity of future debates. 

And many other issues, including the sponsorship of this inclusive national dialogue by the international community: namely, the African Union, the United Nations and the European Union.

There are no conditions that are insurmountable. There are things that we have started to work for, for example, the restitution of the goods seized, confiscated, to a commission which has been set up and which is working hard to return the goods… For the question of amnesty, we are moving in that direction ”.
