Central African Republic – Attack against MINUSCA (26 November 2017)


France condemns the attack against MINUSCA on November 26 which killed an Egyptian peacekeeper. We extend our condolences to the victim’s family as well as to the Egyptian authorities and wish the injured soldiers a speedy recovery.

France reaffirms its support for the work of MINUSCA’s contingents, who are paying a heavy price in their efforts to stabilize the Central African Republic and protect the civilian populations.

This attack reaffirms the need to make swift progress toward the effective disarmament of the armed groups. In this respect, we call for the urgent implementation of the joint road map for peace and reconciliation in CAR, adopted on July 17 in Libreville by the Central African Republic authorities, the African Union and the countries and organizations in the region.
