Maputo - Leaders from Mozambique's government and the main opposition, former rebel movement Renamo, say that there is an urgent need to end fighting between the two sides amid renewed hostilities.
The parties are at ongoing talks in the country's capital, Maputo.
Senior Renamo parliamentary deputy Saimone Macuina said Renamo would like the peace process to be overseen by an international body. Government minister Jose Pacheco said a common strategy to end the fighting must be found.
An agreement signed between the two parties in Rome in 1992 saw an end to a bitter 16-year civil war, but violence flared up again in May when Renamo gunmen attacked a police station at Muxungue in central Mozambique, killing 5 riot police and injuring others.
