The European Union (EU) has strongly condemned the assassination of Mr Jeremias Pondeca, member of the Renamo’s negotiation team in Mozambique, who recently launched peace process.
In its condolence message, the EU said violence can never be an alternative to peaceful dialogue when trying to reach a sustainable solution in a political conflict.
Subsequently, the EU has urged authorities to spare no efforts to bring the perpetrators of the crime to justice.
“All Mozambican parties wish for peace for Mozambique and must stay committed to the peace negotiations and refrain from any action that endangers a process supported by the Mozambican people. The European Union remains ready to assist through all available means,” the EU said in a statement issued on Monday.
