Statement by the Spokesperson on the Peace Process in Mozambique

The meeting between the President of the Republic of Mozambique, Filipe Nyusi, and the President of RENAMO, Ossufo Momade, and the recent progress in implementing the memorandum of understanding on military affairs are steps in the right direction.

Timely and effective implementation of all agreed commitments, including on Disarmament, Demobilisation and Reintegration and decentralization, is crucial and will help fostering mutual trust. It is important that high-level dialogue between both sides continues to achieve a permanent peace agreement as soon as possible.

The European Union will continue to support the parties in this effort, as well as the overall process of peace and national reconciliation, for the benefit of all Mozambicans.
