Q - With regard to your answer yesterday about MINUSCA, can we conclude that France does not think that the UN mission is acting strongly enough in the implementation of its mandate to protect civilian populations?
A - France applauds the efforts of MINUSCA, which is paying a heavy toll to protect civilian populations in the Central African Republic.
It has a solid mandate to carry out its mission. France encourages it to continue implementing it fully.
We are in favor of providing this mission with greater means, and for that purpose have just deployed a seven-drone unit within MINUSCA.
