Obama calls on CAR citizens to be rational

Tue, 10th Dec 2013 06:42


Washington (Alliance News) - US President Barack Obama called on citizens of the Central African Republic to turn their back on hate and seek reconciliation after weeks of violence.

In a radio address taped Monday as Obama was on his way to South Africa for memorial services for former president Nelson Mandela, Obama called on CAR citizens to "show courage that is needed right now" and show "love for your country by rejecting the violence that is threatening to tear it apart."

He called on the CAR transitional government "to listen" to the voices of peace and arrest those who are accountable fore the violence.

"We know what happens when societies descend into violence and retribution," Obama said. "It doesn't have to be this way."

He noted that the US was supporting the UN-backed mission by troops from France and the African Union to contain the violence.

French troops went into action in the capital of Bangui Friday, as part of the UN-backed intervention to end months of militia attacks and sectarian violence.
