This is the first time since the resumption of armed conflict in 2013 that Mozambique's president and the leader of the Renamo opposition party have agreed on an indefinite ceasefire, which represents an important step towards the signing of a peace accord.
Switzerland wishes to congratulate the parties involved and the entire country for this truce, which sends a clear message of trust and paves the way for dialogue and peace, greater social cohesion and economic recovery.
With the greatest respect for the parties and the people of Mozambique, Switzerland will continue to chair the contact group in a spirit of responsibility and participate actively in achieving a lasting peaceful resolution to the conflict.
