What is the Comoros Fomboni Accord?
The Fomboni Agreement is named after the capital of the island of Moheli in the Union of Comoros
|The African nation Comoros is actually three|
small islands; Anjouan, Moheli and Grande Comore.
In 1997, the islands of Anjouan and Moheli declared independence from Comoros. In 1999, military chief Azali Assoumani seized power of the government and helped negotiate the 2000 Fomboni Agreement.
However, Comoros is one of the world's poorest countries. The country is not self-sufficient in food production and rice which is the main staple, is imported.
