Malagasy talks: Ministers hail Desroches process as progress

Malagasy talks: Ministers hail Desroches process as progress ( In a joint press conference held at the Seychelles Ministry of Foreign Affairs this week, both the Seychelles Foreign Minister, Jean-Paul Adam, and the Deputy Minister for International Relations and Cooperation, Marius Fransman, said they were pleased with the progress made in the Malagasy talks held on Desroches island this week but that concluding talks still remained ahead.

Minister Adam, current Chair of the Indian Ocean Commission Council of Ministers, said that “Seychelles is very proud to have hosted the Desroches Process whereby we have brought together these two leaders for the first time for a detailed negotiation following the signing of the roadmap and the decision of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Summit of the 1st of June, which called for a meeting between these two leader before the 31st of July.

“By coming to Seychelles [these two leaders] have shown that they want to find a solution as soon as possible in the interest of the Malagasy people."

Deputy Minister Fransman, also the Special Envoy to Madagascar for South Africa's tenure as Chair of SADC Troika on Politics, Defense, and Security, said that there will be ongoing discussions over the coming days and that he and Minister Adam would be engaging both sides to iron out any outstanding issues:

“In the next 10 days, the next meeting has to take place, though it would be brilliant to get back to Seychelles, it will depend on the practicality of everyone’s diaries … Our intention is to resolve this situation quietly through diplomacy.

“The negotiations were hard, but the two leaders engaged with each other with mutual respect and dignity … The two leaders must now put the interest of Madagascar ahead of their own interests; that is the bottom line."

The two Ministers reiterated that the Desroches process was not yet complete and that further talks were due to talk place soon before the next SADC Summit will be held in Maputo in mid-August.
