The Egyptian foreign ministry issued a statement on Wednesday welcoming the signing of an official peace and reconciliation agreement between the government of the Central Africa Republic and 14 armed groups at the end of negotiations hosted in the Sudanese capital Khartoum.

The statement expressed Egypt's full support for the implementation of the agreement in the "brotherly country of the Central Africa Republic" in accordance with the African Union (AU) Commission's initiative 'silence the guns by 2020.'  

The statement said that Egypt will follow up on the implementation of the agreement during the country's chairmanship of the African Union in 2019, praising the efforts exerted by the brotherly country of Sudan to reach the agreement and alleviate the suffering of the Central Africa Republic's people. 

The deal was reached following unprecedented talks aimed at ending more than five years of conflict, during which thousands of people have been killed and hundreds of thousands displaced.
