EUCLID issues statement on situation in Central African Republic

The EUCLID Secretariat and Senior Management

Team express their grief at the news of the tragic death toll in the Central African Republic, and welcome the United Nations Security Council's decision to authorize a French military intervention to immediately restore civil order. Mindful of the inter-religious dimensions taken by the conflict, EUCLID condemns any and all such violence, and hopes for a prompt return to peace and harmony between the two fraternal communities. EUCLID expresses its ongoing concern, support and care for its friends and colleagues whose situation in Bangui has been extremely difficult, and never forgets the importance of its historic roots and original headquarters, as well as its standing ties with the University of Bangui. EUCLID takes this occasion to mention and praise the remarkable inter-religious harmony and stability experience in the Gambia where its new headquarters have been established with outstanding government support.
