Guinea Bissau, a member country of the United Nations and the Community of Portuguese-speaking countries, is going through a crisis that is worrying the different regional blocs that make up the UN.

as a result of that the Peacebuilding Commission of the organization has held a meeting this Monday to try to know the springs that in the future, could lead that nation to Stability.

Having opened the meeting, we first followed the reports on the current situation in Bissau, where the Permanent Observer of ECOWAS to the United Nations has detailed the last two missions carried out by that African Union bloc, which were, to meet with the parties to the conflict in order to seek rapprochement between the two; and on the other hand, evaluate the implementation of the agreements adopted.

Job Obiang Esono Mbengono, on behalf of Equatorial Guinea, pointed out that the issue at that time should not be the application of possible sanctions, since it could be a counterproductive reality.

"Concerned about the prolonged crisis that impedes the advancement of the sister country in its program of national reform, Equatorial Guinea believes that the international community should continue to prioritize mediation, good offices, dialogue and direct negotiations as the only viable measures to get out of the situation, "said the Equato-Guinean diplomat accredited to the UN.

Having pointed out at another time the need for the parties to do everything possible for an understanding that would lead to the restoration of constitutional order with the support of all the countries that are working for peace, the Deputy Ambassador of our country has finalized his speech also evoking the application of the Conakry Agreement, to guarantee the Stability process in Guinea Bissau.
