As Central African Republic (CAR) authorities and a coalition of rebel groups announced seek to negotiate a ceasefire, CAR head of delegation Georgios Georgantas describes a still tense situation in the capital Bangui and across the country.

Our CAR delegation has assisted persons affected by the fighting throughtout the country and maintains an active presence in Ndele, in the country's north. Mr. Georgantas explains how our teams operated as the violence erupted earlier this year and how the current lull in fighting is allowing for large scale water and assistance distributions, field assessments and increased dialogue with all parties.
