Côte d’Ivoire - Adoption of two resolutions at the United Nations (April 28, 2016)


France welcomes the unanimous adoption, on its initiative, of UNSCR 2283 and UNSCR 2284, on the lifting of all sanctions and the closure of UNOCI in June 2017 in Côte d’Ivoire.

These resolutions reflect the extent of progress made by this country on the path toward reconciliation, peace and security as well as the commitment of the population and the authorities of Côte d’Ivoire in this respect.

They recognize Côte d’Ivoire’s normalization and full return to the international community and demonstrate the effectiveness of the Security Council’s instruments in restoring peace and security.

France will continue to support and assist Côte d’Ivoire in its efforts to consolidate peace, democracy and its development.
