Recent violence aims to destabilize Central Africa

01 October 2015, 19:20

United Nations - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon warned Thursday that recent deadly violence in the Central African Republic was aimed at destabilizing the country and imperil the political process.

"It is clear that the violence occurring recently in Bangui seeks to destabilize the country and imperil the transition process," Ban told a high-level meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

The UN chief called on all parties to put down their weapons at the meeting devoted to the gathering crisis in the country.

"Without the resources to help address security and stabilization needs and ensure human rights for all, the country risks sliding back into protracted conflict and suffering," he said.

The interim leader of the country, who cut short her visit to the UN General Assembly earlier this week, has accused those behind a surge in deadly violence in the capital Bangui of plotting a coup.

Residents said calm returned to the capital Thursday but that tensions remained after several days of bloodshed that began Saturday and killed at least 36 people, forcing almost 30,000 more from their homes.
