    Here's the full article:


    In the article on why pennies should be included in your portfolio , we have mentioned that junior mining companies are a very important category, although most of the junior mining companies’ stocks are in a state of low trading and price all the year round, but grasp At several specific points in time, investing in junior mining companies can still quickly achieve ultra-high returns, which is unmatched by other types of stocks.

    In the current trend of resource market, many companies are expected to rise, especially as gold prices are optimistic, gold mining stocks are worth looking forward to.

    Recently, Toronto-based gold primary exploration company AXMIN (TSXV: AXM ) stocks are amazing (with photos), doubling the gains in four trading days, bringing investors a gratifying return.

    [​IMG]

    AXMIN is principally engaged in the exploration and development of gold projects located in Africa. In fact, in the past 2018, the company's share price has been launched from the bottom, and the stock price has nearly doubled in the whole year. That is to say, if an investor holds AXMIN stock in early 2018, its assets have been turned over. Ten times, this is an impossible income for ordinary stock investment.

    Moreover, all of this happened when the company's news was relatively calm, indicating that the source of the increase was not the company's public relations hype, but the changes in the relevant environment and the improvement of the company's own cash flow.

    In the interview, David Weill, the company's chief financial officer, mentioned three main factors driving the stock price increase: First, benefit from the flow of royalties generated by the company's Gora deposit jointly developed by Teranga Gold (TSX:TGZ) in Senegal, the company's The cash flow is excellent and the profit of the accounting accounts is realized. The company also has 17 potential deposits developed with Teranga that are expected to generate more revenue for the company.

    The second factor is that the geopolitical situation in the Central African Republic is improving. AXMIN's main asset is the Passendro Gold Project, located in the Central African Republic, where AXMIN acquired a 25-year mining permit area (355 square kilometers) in August 2010. At the same time, the company also obtained two three-year, renewable exploration licenses: Bambari 1 and 2 (1,240 square kilometers), which surround the mining permit area and cover a 90-kilometer trend along the vast expanse of the Bambari Greenstone Belt. band.

    However, the Central African Republic has been in a state of turmoil for many years and the conflict between local armed groups has directly led to the stagnation of AXMIN’s project development. Recently, under the mediation of the international community, the security situation in the Central African Republic has improved. On February 6, 2019, the Central African Republic government and 14 armed groups in the country officially signed a peace agreement at the presidential palace in the capital, Bangui, meaning that the situation in the region has begun to stabilize, and the exploration and mining of AXMIN projects is expected to proceed smoothly. Become the main driving force for the company's stock price to rise rapidly.

    The third major factor driving the rise in stock prices is that the company is cleaning up its balance sheet and its current financial position is optimistic. In 2008, Teranga invested US$6 million in exploration expenses and acquired an 80% interest in several exploration licenses in Senegal. AXMIN retained 20% of the project. In February 2012, AXMIN and Teranga revised the joint venture agreement. Under the new agreement, AXMIN chose to hold 1.5% of the net smelting rights of the Gora deposit. Since August 2015, AXMIN has received 1.5% net smelting royalties from the Gora deposit.

    In the future, AXMIN will focus on projects in the Central African Republic and hand over several minerals in Senegal to Teranga for joint development. The company only charges a premium of 1.5% of total revenue. The success of the Gora deposit provided financial security for the development of Passondro assets by AXMIN, and the signing of the Central African Republic peace agreement further became a catalyst for AXMIN stock movements.

    According to AXMIN's plan, the company will increase communication with investors in 2019, actively establish relationships with relevant government agencies, expand its influence in the Central African Republic, and strive to find strategic partners with strong capital and rich mining experience. Develop Passersono assets and fully enter the active business period.

    The trend of the AXMIN compound once again verified several key points of the investment in the pennies of the junior mining companies : the holding of the asset development environment; the emergence of positive cash flow and increased expectations; the market holding mineral products is on the rise. As a gold mineral exploration company, AXMIN is a three-time all-in-one, so it has become the super darling of the market.

    Axmin Receives $300K Royalty Payment From Teranga Gold

    TGZ numbers are out. I estimated they would be getting around $300k for the quarter. Teranga still owes around $600-700K in payments which will likely paid over the next two quarters. Given Axmin's strict costs, the company should earn around $140-150K USD net profit for Q4 2018 and over $1 million USD for 2019. Again we are waiting for CAR to get going, but Senegal is a nice added bonus in the meantime. Plus we could be working on new targets right now given that Gora mining is completed and there are advanced stage targets within 1-3km's.

    TGZ Year End - Feb 2019
    AXM Year End - Apr 2019 (Books will be cleaned as per October 2018)

    TGZ Q1 2019 - Apr 2019
    AXM Q1 2019 - May 2019

    TGZ Q2 2019 - Jul 2019
    AXM Q2 2019 - Aug 2019

    Another note, for any new possible targets on the 337km2 lease, Axmin still owns a 20% interest. However the 17 targets currently identified, the company has a 1.5% NSR.

    From page 36 of TGZ year end results:

    The joint venture partner of the exploration permit has elected a 1.5 percent net smelter royalty on all currently identified targets within the original Sounkounkou permit and including the Gora project in exchange for its fully participatory 20 percent interest. The joint venture partner retains a 20 percent participatory right for any new exploration targets identified or to elect the royalty.

    KHARTOUM (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 24th February, 2019) The government of the Central African Republic (CAR) and armed formations, which have recently signed a peace deal to end the armed conflict in the country, have pledged to refrain from recruiting people, in particular minors and foreigners, into armed formations, according to the text of the agreement seen by Sputnik on Sunday.

    5 Top Weekly TSXV Stocks: CAR Peace Deal Boosts AXMIN
    https://investingnews.com/daily/res...ekly-tsxv-stocks-car-peace-deal-boosts-axmin/

    AXMIN
    AXMIN made this list last week, when its shares rose to C$0.36 in the same week the government of the Central African Republic (CAR) announced peace deals with a medley of rebel groups.

    AXMIN, a gold developer and explorer, is focused on its Pessendro project which is in the CAR.

    The company was up again this week, though with no new news from the company (its last news was from January) — so stock markets seem to believe the peace deals will hold.

    On the TSXV AXMIN was up to C$0.45 — a gain of another 55.17 percent.


    Note: Not sure what the editor is saying about news. There was a release in January and in February as per newswire. From February:

    Axmin pleased with CAR's peace agreement

    2019-02-12 05:50 MT - News Release



    Ms. Lucy Yan reports

    THE GOVERNMENT OF THE CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC (CAR) ANNOUNCES A PEACE AGREEMENT WITH ARMED GROUPS

    Axmin Inc. notes the following news release.

    On Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019, the government of the CAR announced on social media that an agreement for peace had been made at the talks taking place in Khartoum. The government stated that the agreement would be initialled on Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019, and thereafter it was signed in Bangui on Feb. 6.

    The agreement comes after discussions that were facilitated in Khartoum by the African Union and the United Nations with assistance from Russia. The key points of this agreement are:



    • An immediate cessation of violence by the armed groups against defence and security forces, UN personnel, humanitarian workers and the general population;
    • The armed groups will respect the legitimacy of the CAR's institutions and will disband;
    • The government will analyze the reintegration of the leaders of the armed groups who previously served as civil servants or in the military;
    • The government will set up a truth, justice, reparation and reconciliation commission within 90 days;
    • The parties to the agreement will undertake to set up mixed security units that will include both the defence and security forces as well as former members of the armed groups;
    • A Prime Minister will be appointed drawn from a representative of the former armed groups;
    • The former armed groups will have the right to start political parties without hindrance.


    Ambassador Smail Chergui, the African Union Commissioner for Peace and Security, stated on social media:

    "I am humbled to announce that with the exemplary co-operation I received from both the government of the CAR(@GouvCF) and the 14 armed groups, we have secured a #peace agreement today in the interest of the people of #CAR."

    Separately on Thursday, Jan. 31, 2019, the United Nations Security Council voted unanimously on a resolution drafted by France that provides for a road map to lift the arms embargo on the CAR. This resolution states that the council will establish requisite benchmarks by April 30, ,2019 and will assess progress on these benchmarks by July 31, 2019. The council will then review the arms embargo measures by Sept. 30, 2019.

    The resolution welcomes "the significant efforts made by the CAR authorities" to advance security sector reform, including by developing a national defence plan and national security policy. This resolution acknowledged "the urgent need for the CAR authorities to train and equip their defence and security forces to be able to respond proportionately to threats to the security of all citizens in the CAR." The council stated that it had granted several exemptions to allow shipments of weapons from France, Russia, China, the United States and Belgium for the CAR army.

    Axmin's chairman and chief executive officer Lucy Yan stated:

    "Axmin is delighted to hear that a peace agreement has been reached in Khartoum and hope that this agreement will be honoured and bring security and stability to the CAR. The company believes that the combination of the agreement together with the eventual lifting of the arms embargo should provide both the framework for stability and also the effective method of enforcement by equipping and deploying the military forces of the government of the CAR. We look forward to being back on site and working on developing the Passendro asset as soon as conditions allow in the near future."

    A further press release regarding the security situation in Ndassima, the location of the company's Passendro asset, will be made when appropriate to do so.

    Central African Republic : the appointment of the new prime minister hailed by the main representatives of rebel groups

    https://africandailyvoice.com/en/20...ter-hailed-main-representatives-rebel-groups/

    2019-02-27Central African Republic, POLITICS

    NEWSROOM (ADV) – In accordance with the commitments made on February 6 by the Central African authorities and the main rebel groups, President Faustin Archange Touadéra on Monday (February 25th) appointed a new Prime Minister, Firmin Ngrebada. The task of the new head of government is delicate. He needs to form an inclusive government without delay.

    The Political Bureau of the Popular Front for the Renaissance of the Central African Republic (FPRC) and the National Coordination of the Anti-Balaka Patriot Movement, in a joint statement obtained by ADV, welcomed the appointment of Mr. Firming Ngrenada and at the same time renewed their commitment to peace under the leadership of the President of the Republic, Mr. Faustin Archange Touadera.

    The signatories of this declaration, Noureidine Adam and Maxime Mokom, on behalf of their movements, thank the President for this move which goes hand in hand with the commitments of the concluded Khartoum agreement.

    The FPRC and the Anti-Balaka wish to see the new Prime Minister continue in this positive dynamic.

    Today's (Wed) action showed an increase in volume but smaller price spread (increased effort with less result) compared to Monday indicating sellers may be overcoming demand. May see a retracement soon but so far 49 cents is holding. If weakness does appear, it should find support at 40 cents.

    No weakness yet, continuing higher, but on the alert for shortening of the upward thrust.

    It's moved pretty quick over the last couple weeks. I figured the attempt from 50 cents to $1 would happen with verification of going back to Passendro with the JV partner. But at this rate, that target will get exceeded simply because asset value far exceeds even where the current price is at today.

    UNODC opens project office in Bangui, Central African Republic

    http://www.unodc.org/unodc/en/front...fice-in-bangui--central-african-republic.html

    Bangui, Central African Republic, 4 March 2018 - Following the "Political Agreement for Peace and Reconciliation in the Central African Republic" finalized in Khartoum and signed on 6 February by the Government of the Central African Republic and 14 armed groups, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) officially announced the opening of a project office in Bangui.

    The announcement was made by the UNODC Regional Representative for West and Central Africa, Pierre Lapaque, during a visit to the Central African Republic from 19 to 22 February. He said that "urgent action is needed to maintain the momentum created by the recently concluded peace agreement" because "we cannot build a State and a nation without effective, transparent and accessible justice for all."

    The UNODC office in Bangui opened in June 2018 following the signing of an agreement with the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA). This partnership between UNODC and MINUSCA aims to support the operationalization of the Special Criminal Court (SCC) in the Central African Republic.

    The SCC was established by law in 2015 as a national court to judge cases of serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law committed in the Central African Republic territory since 1 January 2003. In this context, UNODC's mandate is more specifically to assist the SCC in the development of its legal aid and victim and witness protection services.

    UNODC provided input to the development of legal and regulatory instruments on both victim and witness protection as well as legal aid that have been successfully adopted. These include the Loi portant Règlement de Procédure et de Preuves (May 2018), the SCC Règlement interieur (October 2018), and the Arrete portant organisation et fonctionnement de l'Organe paritaire chargé de l'admission des candidats au Corps special d'avocats près la Cour penale spéciale (December 2018).

    During his visit to the Central African Republic, the UNODC Regional Representative also met with national authorities interested in UNODC'S mandate, including the Prime Minister, and ministers of the Interior, Justice, Mines and Water and Forestry. These exchanges show a strong political will to collaborate with UNODC to combat serious crimes such as corruption, trafficking in natural resources, firearms, money-laundering, among others, that hinder peace, stability and development in the country.

    The opening of the project office in the Central African Republic and UNODC's various activities in the country contribute to the development of a Regional Strategy that UNODC aims to implement in Central Africa to better respond to the interconnected challenges posed by transnational organized crime on the African continent.

    It also contributes to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, in particular Goal 16 on promoting peace, justice and transparent and effective institutions.

    Pope and CAR President satisfied for Framework Agreement between their states

    https://www.vaticannews.va/en/africa/news/2019-03/pope-president.print.html

    ope Francis on Tuesday afternoon received in private audience, the president of the Central African Republic, Mr. Faustin Archange Touadéra.

    By Godfrey Kampamba

    During their encounter, the Holy Father and Mr. Touadera focused their discussion on the existing good bilateral relations between the Holy See and the Central African Republic. Apart from looking at issues regarding the current situation in the country, the two leaders also expressed their satisfaction about the ratification of the Framework Agreement between the two states, underscoring the importance of the contribution of the Catholic Church in the construction of the Central African Republic, and acknowledged the role of Catholic institutions in the fields of education and healthcare.

    The meeting between the pope and Mr. Touadera came just two days after the inauguration of the Bangui Pediatric Hospital, constructed with the sponsorship of Pope Francis, for which president Touadera expressed his and the gratitude of the people of his country.

    Ratification of Framework Agreement between Holy See and CAR
    Soon after his meeting with the pope, Mr. Touadera went on to meet with the secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, who was accompanied by the Secretary for Relations with States, Archbishop Paul Gallagher. During this occasion, the secretary of State gave President Touadera the Instrument of the Ratification of the Framework Agreement between the Holy See and the Central African Republic. The Framework Agreement was signed on 6 September 2016 in Bangui and concerns matters of mutual interest. A communique from the Vatican later on Tuesday announced the entry into force of the Framework agreement.

    Meeting with St. Egidio Community
    From the Vatican, the central African Republican president visited the Sant’Egidio Community in Rome, where he was received by the founder, Prof. Andrea Riccardi, and other leaders of the Community.I have come here because this is a house of peace that has come to mean a lot for my country, said president Touadera, underlining the strong links of friendship that have united the Central African Republic and the Sant'Egidio Community, even in the darkest hours of the country.

    Touadera also expressed his gratitude for the work of the Sant’Egidio Community in the cure of HIV and AIDS through a programme known as DREAM, and through which a centre has been opened to take care of the sick.

    Mon 25/02/2019 - 12:00

    United States Announces Additional Support to the FACA
    https://cf.usembassy.gov/united-states-announces-additional-support-to-the-faca/?sfns=mo
    BANGUI – The United States Embassy in Bangui announces the launch of an additional $3.5 million in security assistance training programs for the Central African Armed Forces (FACA). These funds for the Central African Republic (CAR) represent the next phase in the United States’ $12 million in funding to reform and redeploy the FACA.

    “This tranche of equipment and training continues our investment in CAR’s security, and demonstrates our commitment to helping build a peaceful and prosperous Central African Republic. This will combine with the efforts of the government of and people of CAR to move forward on a path to peace and prosperity. This comes at a particularly important time as we are all working together to ensure effective implementation of the recently signed Khartoum accords,” Ambassador Lucy Tamlyn commented regarding the news.

    The funding will provide comprehensive logistics, operations, and management training to the FACA to help maintain and grow Camp Kassai. It will also train FACA in valuable trade skills, including electrical repair, masonry, welding, plumbing, carpentry, and general mechanics. These skills will enable the FACA to maintain their own facilities, and repair their own equipment.

    Central African Republic: Health takes pride of place at the 17th International Economic Forum

    The International Chamber for the Counseling and Promotion of Enterprises (CICP) organizes under the very high Patronage of HE Faustin Archange TOUADERA, President of the Republic, Head of State, Central African Republic, the 17th International Multi-sectoral Economic Forum which will take place on April 24 & 25, 2019 in Bangui. The health sector is supported by the French Digital Medical Club & Health Innovation 4 round tables on topics in line with the needs of Central Africa are on the agenda: Stroke : prevention and improvement of care. This is a serious pathology since 30% of stroke victims die during the first month and among the 70% who return home, more than 80% have sequelae with physical, neuro-psychological, family or professional consequences often heavy. In this context, it is essential to train the population in the prevention of chronic diseases and stroke, but also to modernize the care pathways. Feedback from experience (Senegal). How to scale up care in Africa? False medicine : from the struggle to solutions Fake drugs are a major public health issue worldwide, accounting for 10% of drugs in circulation, up to 30% in Africa or Latin America. There are an estimated 700,000 annual deaths from this traffic. In this context, the MEDICRIM convention, the first international instrument of penal law, is struggling to implement. What legislative developments to expect? What international mobilization for safety rules and shared action plans? What role do manufacturers play? All these questions will make it possible to take stock of the current situation and to set the prospects for a coordinated and effective partnership action. Health and digital : Africa, laboratory of the future The International Conference of Ministers of Health and New Technologies in Africa (CIMSA) last June has identified the need for a joint strategy of the two ministries to advance effectively in the territories. Africa's technological innovation is growing rapidly but needs financing and governance regulation, which CIMSA has also endorsed. How can digital health help the continent move from an era of humanitarian aid to that of a health democracy? What interactions are to be put in place between North and South to accelerate its development? New conceptions of hospitals and health facilities , between efficiency and modularity Health innovation is often seen as synonymous with new technological tools that are ever more efficient and more expensive. However, if the added value of the latter is not demonstrated by the medical progress made in recent decades in rich countries, new forms of innovation are emerging. The requirements related to health needs, to the constraints of the territories and to the control of the expenses led all the actors to question on the relevance of the medical projects to be put in place for a most relevant and least expensive offer of care possible. Thus, the scarcity of resources in some countries, particularly in Africa, has become a true source of innovation, responding to a logic of how to do more with less. This "frugal" approach, which is essentially pragmatic, is at the origin of the most creative care solutions. Design of care structures adapted to patients and caregivers, organization of these, optimized management, training of health actors, The sharing of various experiences will consolidate the objectives pursued in terms of the efficiency of the healthcare solutions envisaged, which are increasingly rooted in local realities. On the agenda of this 17th Forum, conferences on health and e-health in Africa , the different interactions to be set up between North-South and South-South, to accelerate the development of the sub-region, but also a great conference on the future of digital health by 2030. All of this work is needed in the sub-region because each subject proposed represents a need on the spot. The CMNFIS www.clubmedicalnumerique.org , more than 450 members in the French speaking territories to sensitize, train and animate the health actors to the digital transformation through a dozen events per year, dealing with medical innovation and digital, training for health professionals and institutions in driving change, co-structuring of a living-lab on autonomy and accessibility, assistance with the assembly of Adrenaline, an international incubator-accelerator specialized in lifelong prevention and digital health. The CMNFIS is finally a Think & Do Tank, with the structuring and assembly of collaborative projects: mobile teams, sleep, rehabilitation of walking disorders, mobile health for landlocked territories ... It is expected about 500 participants in this forum (Investors - Policies - NGOs - Industrial - Entrepreneurs) Program - Congress Registration - Press Accreditations: http://www.cicpgroup.com Partnerships - Exhibitors - Institutional: +33 (0) 645 630 995 [email protected]

    Refugee's Return To Ndassima (Where AXM Has It's Gold Deposit) - Area Secured & Rebels Removed?

    Central African Republic: Return of displaced people observed in several cities after Khartoum peace agreement

    Bangui, Central African Republic, (ADV) - Several IDPs and refugees have been returning to their respective areas since February, following the lull after the peace agreement signed between the government and the country's armed groups.

    Just one month after the signing of the peace agreement between the government and the 14 armed groups in the country, the security situation is gradually improving in the interior, favoring the return of displaced persons and refugees to their respective areas. . This return was recorded by the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Central Africa (OCHA).

    In the north of Paoua, more than 23,000 spontaneous returnees and 26,700 returnees were identified from 21 February to 7 March 2019, ie 4,351 households of 23,394 spontaneous returnees and 4,846 households of 26,713 returned to their respective villages. "This return is helped by the lull in the security situation. Humanitarian actors are mobilized for assistance to returnees and returnees, "reports OCHA's humanitarian bulletin.

    These data are confirmed after the organization of 4 missions to monitor population movements in several villages in northern Paoua by UNHCR and humanitarian partners.

    A little in the center of the country in Ndassima about 60 km north of the Bambari, 13,450 people returned to the Ndassima-Bambari axis, including 310 people in Ndassima 1,250 people in Ndassima 2, and 7,000 people or 430 households in Krandja and Djoubissi.

    On the Bria IDP site, at least 2,060 people have returned to the 50,897 sites at 5 sites, a 3.88% reduction compared to February 2019 compared to December 2018. This return is also due to the lull observed in recent weeks in the region, according to humanitarian actors.

    In the western zone, notably in Boukolo, 45 km from Berberati on the Gamboula road, the population welcomes daily the return of Fulani refugees to Cameroon. The presence of a hundred breeders in these regions testifies to the cohabitation between the communities.

    These returns are also observed in Bakouma and Alindao, two cities that were affected by the violence towards the end of 2018. The return allowed the reopening of 70% of the schools. Of the 46 schools, 32 are operational and 30% or 9 schools are currently occupied by armed groups.

    Although aid workers have observed the return to several cities, the management of transhumance remains a source of tension in Bocaranga and Ngaoundaye in the north of the country. At least 896 hectares of fields have been devastated by livestock in these areas. "1,200 households lost their fields because of transhumance, given that 73% of these households have only their fields as their source of income, while 27% of these households have spontaneous returns," commented one humanitarian actor.

    The lull observed in recent weeks after the signing of the peace agreement between the government and the armed groups remains fragile, given the challenge of the new government following the Khartoum dialogue by some armed groups who demand more space in this inclusive government.

    Monday Talks On CAR Peace Process To Tackle Formation Of Gov't, Security - AU Commissioner
    https://www.urdupoint.com/en/world/monday-talks-on-car-peace-process-to-tackle-f-572064.html

    MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 16th March, 2019) The upcoming consultation meeting on the peace process in the Central African Republic (CAR) will address outstanding concerns about government formation and security arrangements, Smail Chergui, the African Union (AU)'s peace and security commissioner, told Sputnik on Saturday.

    The AU-organized meeting will be held in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa on Monday. It is expected to follow up on the progress that has been made since the car government and 14 armed groups signed a peace agreement in early February.

    "As you know, some movements raised the issue of the formation of the government ... This meeting really is to get stock, one month after we sign the agreement, of where we are and also address these issues and also take additional measures in implementing other articles, mainly those relating to the security arrangements in terms of deploying the security unit on the ground, and so on," Chergui said.

    The commissioner added that the implementation of this agreement on CAR peace settlement appeared to be more successful than of the previous agreements.

    "I think it's more or less ... positive way that we are dealing with the matter this time compared to the former agreements," Chergui said.

    He added that the meeting would last for as long as necessary.

    "Whatever is needed. We are starting on Monday, March 18, and [the meeting will] certainly [continue on] Tuesday, March 19, and hopefully we can address all the matters," Chergui said.

    The Central African Republic has been suffering from a drawn-out conflict since a coup in 2013. Much of the fighting in recent years has been between Muslim-majority Seleka and Christian Anti-Balaka militias.

    Bogdanov Discusses Moscow's Assistance In CAR's Development In Bangui - Foreign Ministry

    https://www.urdupoint.com/en/world/bogdanov-discusses-moscows-assistance-in-car-572588.html

    Faizan Hashmi 3 hours ago Sun 17th March 2019 | 05:20 PM

    MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 17th March, 2019) Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov has visited the Central African Republic (CAR) to discuss bilateral cooperation and Russia's assistance in boosting the republic's security and development with the country's leadership, the Foreign Ministry said on Sunday.

    During his visit to CAR's capital of Bangui on Saturday, Bogdanov held meetings with President Faustin-Archange Touadera and the country's top diplomat, Samuel Rangba.

    "A substantial discussion of topical issues related to the Russian-Central African relations and the prospects of further expansion of mutually beneficial cooperation, including Bangui's interest in Russia's assistance in CAR's socioeconomic development, the training of national personnel, enhancement of security and stability in this friendly African country, has taken place," the ministry said in a statement, published on its official website.

    The Russian deputy foreign minister also reiterated Moscow's readiness to help promote the implementation of the 2018 Khartoum Declaration on the establishment of peace and security in the Central African Republic and the peace deal that was signed between the car government and armed formations in early February to end the armed conflict in the country.

    In recent years, CAR has been struggling with the conflict between the Muslim-majority armed group Seleka and primarily Christian Anti-balaka militia. In August 2018, the armed groups signed a declaration of understanding as a result of Russia-brokered talks in the Sudanese capital, which was followed by a peace deal between the government and over a dozen armed formations, inked on February 6.

    CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC REACHES DEAL ON NEW GOVT: AFRICAN UNION

    https://www.justiceinfo.net/en/live...yruU2SSCXEDLlQLMKiJzoz9W24OcMcf9e9vtZlgCJUev4

    The government of the Central African Republic and armed groups that had joined it in a peace deal have reached an agreement to form an "inclusive government," the African Union said Wednesday.

    "The Central African authorities and the 14 armed groups (that) signed the peace accord negotiated in early February in Khartoum agreed to an 'inclusive government' in Addis Ababa," the AU said.

    The deal is the eighth attempt to bring peace to the conflict-wracked, impoverished state since 2012.

    Signed in the CAR capital Bangui on February 6 after negotiations in Sudan, it brings together the CAR government and 14 armed groups who control most of the country.

    The agreement called for a series of confidence-building measures, such as establishing joint patrols and the creation of a truth and justice commission within 90 days.
