That is the main message I gave. We continue to preach and this time I hope many people will listen. We started talking about dialogue, inclusive dialogue, we also continue to talk so that people lay down their arms. Weapons cannot solve this problem. We talk about a ceasefire, that people lay down their arms… but we must insist on this inclusive dialogue. “, did he declare.
