Statement on the Liberian Peace Agreement by Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter

Contact: Deanna Congileo

ATLANTA, GA…..The Carter Center and I welcome the peace agreement reached last night in Accra. It is our profound hope that this document will prove to be a springboard for the lasting peace so much desired by ordinary Liberians. This cannot be another false dawn. We urge Liberian leaders to work tirelessly to regain the trust of their people and to learn fully from past mistakes. With the strong assistance of the international community, it is now time to begin to implement all needed measures to lift Liberians out of poverty and oppression and move toward a future based on good governance and respect for basic human rights.
