The group of countries friends of the ECCAS (Economic Community of Central African States), composed of the USA, France, Germany, Spain, Japan, Turkey and China, as well as the European Union, expressed its intention to offer technical and financial support, in an act called by the Secretary General of the institution, Ahmad Allam-Mi, to seek funding for the strategic plan to combat terrorism in Central Africa.
The statement released by the ECCAS said that the meeting in Libreville, Gabon, headquarters of the institution, was also attended by Ambassadors and representatives of Egypt, Morocco, the International Committee of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, FAO, the International Organization of Francophonie (OIF) and the African Union.
This meeting is part of the line of continued support of the international community to the efforts made by the ECCAS, especially its action plan and the Special Fund for Humanitarian Action, aimed at combating the terrorist group Boko Haram.
During the meeting, they talked about the fight against terrorism; the socio-political situation in the Central African Republic and various organizational matters. Ahmad Allam-Mi convened this forum to implement the recommendations of the Heads of State and Government of the ECCAS, at its special meeting of the Council for Peace and Security in Central Africa (COPAX) last February in Yaounde, Cameroon, which was attended by the President of the Republic, H.E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.
