CAR – Transfer of authority for MISCA [AFISM-CAR] to the African Union (December 19, 2013)
France welcomes today’s transfer of authority for the African-led International Support Mission in the Central African Republic (MISCA [AFISM-CAR]) to the African Union. This transfer of authority is taking place in accordance with the decisions of the African Union Peace and Security Council and the UN Security Council.
France pays tribute to the decisive action of the Economic Community of Central African States and its members to re-establish security and the rule of law in the CAR. The French forces are providing support in order to ensure MISCA’s full deployment.
We commend the African Union’s determination to continue its work and support all of its efforts to promote peace on the continent.
