Statements by the Spokesperson

The spokespersons for High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini and the Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, Neven Mimica, have issued the following joint statement:

The EU continues to closely monitor the situation in Gabon.  It joins the African Union's Peace and Security Council in reiterating the importance of a transparent and regular process of appeal to the Constitutional Court in order to maintain stability in the country.

To that end, it supports the deployment of observers chosen from among members of French-speaking African high courts to assist the Constitutional Court of Gabon.  It calls upon the Gabonese authorities to cooperate fully in facilitating their deployment.
