Equatorial Guinea Highlights Stability in Congo

The Republic of Equatorial Guinea highlighted the Democratic Republic of Congo’s progress in regards to stability at a recent meeting of the United Nations (UN) Security Council.

Equatorial Guinea high-level officials, as well as representatives from Bolivia and France, traveled to Congo in early October to monitor their upcoming electoral process.

Equatorial Guinea outlined Congo’s peaceful election framework regarding the publication and printing of voter lists, the reduction of political tension, transparent use of voting machines, and open, peaceful dialogue between all parties. 

Congo is set to hold elections on 23 December. 

At the UN, Equatorial Guinea has focused through its Permanent Representative, Anatolio Ndong Mba, on negotiations and dialogue for the peaceful resolution of armed conflicts; active participation in strategies to combat terrorism, illegal human trafficking, drug trafficking, organized and cross-border crime, endemic diseases and pandemics, extremism, xenophobia, racial discrimination and corruption; active defense of human rights; active participation in mitigating catastrophic effects of climate change; and active participation in the execution of the UN 2030 and African Union 2063 agendas, in parallel with their own Horizon 2020 national program.
