France welcomes the appointment of Mankeur Ndiaye as special representative of the UN secretary-general and head of the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA).

As head of this peacekeeping operation, Mr. Ndiaye’s primary objective will be to establish the political, security and institutional conditions conducive to the lasting stabilization of the Central African Republic. He will be able to count on France’s full support in the performance of his duties.

We would like to express our special thanks to Mankeur Ndiaye’s predecessor, Parfait Onanga-Anyanga, for the outstanding work he carried out in this post for almost three and a half years.
