Agreemente between parties for outsider observers and dialogue.
An accord on the presence of “external observers” and a commitment to resume talks resulted from a first meeting after months between government officials and representatives of the National Mozambican Resistance (Renamo), a former rebel movement that became the opposition party after the civil war.
Since March 2012, attacks and clashes between government forces and Renamo members left dozens dead.
The presence of external observers was among the key conditions posed by the former rebels for a negotiations, stresses the media today in Maputo.
The meeting was the first since the attack by security forces against a Renamo base, where in 2012 its historical leader Afonso Dhlakama settled.
The Renamo denounces electoral broils by the ruling Frelimo (Liberation Front of Mozambique) and demands an equal distribution of proceeds from recently discovered coal and hydrocarbon in the north. Tension is high in Mozambique also due to the nearing of presidential and legislative elections in October.
