  • Central African Republic - Interview given by Laurent Fabius to France 24 (24.01.14)

    There are 1,600 French and 4,000 Africans – soon there will be 6,000. We got the Europeans – and it’s a very good thing – to send around 500 troops. The decision in principle was taken on Monday. Ultimately there will probably need to be more troops. And this is why we’re saying that the current operation must become a peacekeeping operation under United Nations control; this will allow more troops to be deployed. The core will be African. The Africans are doing a very good job, but we’ve got to go a bit further. I’m a practical person. Also, the cost of a UN peacekeeping operation is covered by that organization, while the Africans don’t have many financial resources.

  • Central African Republic - Increase in troop strength of MISCA (17.01.14)

    France welcomes the increase in troop strength of MISCA [AFISM-CAR], the African force deployed in the Central African Republic, which will soon comprise more than 5,000 soldiers and police officers. We pay tribute to its decisive action to protect the civilian populations and to restore stability in the country.

  • CAR – Firing of three ministers (16.12.13)

    France is concerned at the firing of three ministers, as well as the head of the Treasury Department, announced yesterday by Michel Djotodia, without the countersignature of Prime Minister Nicolas Tiangaye. This action, which goes against the constitutional charter for the transition and the Libreville agreements, is likely to further exacerbate instability in the Central African Republic.

  • Central African Republic (Q&A - Excerpt from the daily press briefing - 05.11.13)

    France has been mobilized from the outset to find a solution to the situation in the Central African Republic and to help the Africans resolve the crisis. We’ve been asking the UN Security Council to meet since August and we supported the adoption of a resolution. The minister went to the Central African Republic recently. He reaffirmed that it was vital to help the people given the seriousness of the humanitarian situation. He underscored the need for a political solution in accordance with the road map, with the aim of holding elections at the beginning of 2015 at the very latest.

  • Central African Republic (Q&A - Excerpt from the daily press briefing - 28.08.13)

    In cooperation with its African partners, France is working with the Security Council members on a draft resolution to support these stabilization efforts and to strengthen UN efforts, notably in order to support a political transition in accordance with the international community’s expectations, better ensure respect for human rights and improve humanitarian access to the populations. We hope that this draft resolution can be presented in New York in the next few weeks.

  • Situation in Central African Republic (13.08.13)

    In view of the deteriorating humanitarian situation, France has also unblocked emergency aid as well as €2 million in food aid. This assistance is in addition to the EU’s humanitarian contribution of €20 million.

    A summit under the aegis of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECOCAS), initially planned for 15 April, is due to be held this Thursday, 18 April, in Ndjamena, Chad, the country which currently holds the ECOCAS presidency. We offer our full support to this initiative, so that the conditions for overcoming the crisis and for a consensual transition may be defined. We are therefore awaiting the conclusions of this meeting.

The three documents signed (ceasefire, statement of principle, political agreement) are the first steps toward a settlement likely to bring long-term stability to the Central African Republic.

  • Central African Republic – Rebel avance (24.12.12)

    France condemns the continued hostilities in the Central African Republic by rebel movements. As the members of the UN Security Council emphasized on December 19, these groups, which are jeopardizing the country’s stability, must be held accountable for their actions.
