KPCS Chair breaks deadlock: agreement reached for C.A.R. diamond exports

16 march 2016
Meetings between the Central African Republic (CAR) Minister for Mines Joseph Agbo and a representative of CAR's largest diamond producer, SODIAM, chaired by Kimberley Process Certificate Scheme (KPCS) Chair Ahmed Bin Sulayem, appear to have bridged a longstanding disagreement between the two sides regarding resumption of diamond exports from the country, reports the UAE's The National.
The Central African Republic was suspended from the Kimberley Process in May 2013, consequently making it illegal for Kimberley Process member countries to trade in rough diamonds from that country.
KP officials last year recommended a resumption of diamond exports from CAR, but the process was reportedly delayed by internal disagreements regarding the implementation.
Commenting on the results of the meetings, Bin Sulayem says, "The effective resumption of exports from CAR was one of the main priorities of the KP chairmanship 2016 and I am particularly proud that we have been able to break the deadlock that has obstructed effective exports for so long."
