Corrected: Russia's Sergei Lavrov expected in Maputo - APA
President Nyusi has revealed that there is pressure against some of the understandings reached in dialogue with Renamo leader Afonso Dhlakama in the process of negotiations for effective peace in the country.
President Nyusi revealed this last Saturday at a meeting in Morrumbene district, Inhambane province, on the last day of his three-day working visit province.
The head of state cited the agreement to withdraw government troops from the Gorongosa mountain range as one example.
“When we announced the withdrawal of the Defence and Security Forces from some positions, not everyone understood. Society does not understand, but there is also pressure from the other side, arguing that we should give a little more. But others argue that we have given up more than we should,” Nyusi said. He did not specify the origin of the pressure, stressing only that it has been difficult to manage the situation.
As he did on his visit to Tete, Nyusi again bemoaned the existence of some in the provinces who seemed to contradict the spirit of peace.
“We have been considering as isolated acts still to be clarified certain things that arise in some province. If it comes to a phase when they become worse, at a time when we are experiencing truce, then once again we will conduct efforts at leadership level so that we can find consensus,” he said, without elaborating further.Source: O País
