10:37 pm
cycle of violence began in two thousand and thirteen when mainly muslim rebels seized power in a coup christian groups then hit back in retaliation. the conflict has cost a quarter of the population to flee their homes schools have closed and the health care system is barely functioning two and three children are in need of humanitarian assistance more than twelve thousand u.n. troops stationed in the former french colony have failed to contain the conflict and none of the numerous deals previously struck with the various rebel groups have managed to restore stability all sides expressed optimism when the latest peace agreement was signed but of previous attempts are anything to go by nothing is guaranteed. joining me now is richard moncrieff of central africa project director with the international crisis group richard welcome to the show thanks for joining us now the african union says it is very optimistic about this current peace deal
10:38 pm
but how optimistic and they'd be looking at the fact that seven deals did not go to. well i think the african union its right to support this peace deal along with what's written on paper in khartoum is the right kind of thing that talks about disarmament of the main groups talks about a more inclusive government those are rather but then not new but they are worth supporting now while i optimistic well as you say we've been here before seven peace agreements in the last six years they will look the same and the problem is always it needs to meditation that we need much greater international pressure now the african union is saying that that international pressures that the real value of car to was to have all the international leaders like faqih like representatives of representatives of the countries neighbors in the rue signing up today's but they need to do more they need to pressure the parties in the country and that
10:39 pm
includes the armed groups to adhere to the agreements now talking about the groups file of the fourteen one to gain more representation in government because of that they have withdrawn their members out from government how is this going to affect the peace deal of course it's not a good sign but at the same time it brother exposes the the armed groups inside upping cops who they were really to get these positions so we've got assad if that's happening now then now saying well we don't have to adhere to our part of the agreement as long as the government doesn't give us positions in ministries so something of a standoff just a month from the signing of the agreement that many still need to be ironed out now that al about twelve thousand u.n. troops in car how long are they going to remain what's the plan there.
10:40 pm
well right now that they've got they've got a mandate to remain to further twelve months and what we understand from new york and from washington is that there is a good degree of international support for that level of peacekeeping in the country and the americans as i'm sure your listeners will know putting pressure on u.n. peacekeeping around the world but it seems to the moment that the mission in central african republic is free from that kind of pressure and we can expect those numbers to remain neck but the u.n. needs to up its game it needs to push back against the old groups which is a very difficult thing to do because these armed groups very skilled at melting back into the population and it's a very cold blood pressure ok richard moncrieff central africa project director international crisis group many thanks for your time. now well past a british led scientific mission has broadcast live television quality video and
