Central African Republic – Appointment of the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary General and head of MINUSCA (July 16, 2014)

Mr. Gaye will be responsible for UN action on the ground to ensure the protection of civilians, ensure the stabilization of the country and help resolve the crisis.

France supports the Central African Republic (CAR) in its efforts to emerge from crisis. By maintaining ongoing dialogue with the new local authorities, encouraging their efforts to restore security and reinforcing their legitimacy, France is signalling its intention to assist the CAR in its efforts to avoid becoming a permanently failed state and to respond to the risk of a major humanitarian crisis.

France’s commitment to the recovery of the CAR and to regional stability was also demonstrated in the support provided by the French military detachment of Operation Boali (410 French military personnel stationed in Gabon) to the CAR forces and to the MISCA international support mission, in the form of logistic support (provision of equipment and fuel) and training (organisation of operational instruction detachments). France also increased its bilateral food aid (€2 million in 2013) and its emergency humanitarian aid (€0.5 million programmed for 2013) to the local population.

On the multilateral front, France has given its full support to the actions of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) and the African Union, to the United Nations Security Council and the European Union.

France also supports the CAR in its dealings with international financial institutions (reaching the completion point of the HIPC initiative and obtaining an extended credit facility from the IMF, Peacebuilding Commission, etc.).
