The General Secretary of the Economic Community of Central African States (CEEAC), the Ambassador Ahmed Allam-Mi, has sent a letter to the Head of State, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, in which he expressed condemnation of the failed destabilisation attempt in Equatorial Guinea. We include here the full text of the message.
Excellency, Mr. President of the Republic, It is with great astonishment that we have received reports of the failed attempted State Coup and destabilisation of the Subregion of Central Africa in Equatorial Guinea, perpetrated by lawless faithless men, with the support of mercenaries.
Faced with this situation, I wish to express the Solidarity of the entire Community and my warm congratulations to the Forces of Defence and Security in Equatorial Guinea for their professionalism and loyalty, which has enabled the attempt from another era to be prevented.
At this moment in which democracy is being consolidated throughout the Subregion, no taking of power through non-democratic ways which do not respect the respective Constitutions of the States, in accordance with the relevant instruments at a subregional, continental and international level, can be tolerated. I have no doubts regarding the capacity of the States in the Subregion to cooperate and act collectively, in order to dismantle and neutralise the headquarters from where the attack originated.
From this perspective, as General Secretary of the CEEAC, I am willing to carry out any instruction from higher bodies if they agree to deploy the instruments of the Peace and Security Council of Central Africa (COPAX), in particular the Mutual Assistance Pact.
I implore you, Mr, President of the Republic, to accept the renewed security of my highest and most respectful regards.
Ambassador Ahmed Allam-Mi.
