UN – Central African Republic – Renewal of MINUSCA mandate (July 26, 2016)

France applauds the unanimous adoption, by the UN Security Council, of the resolution renewing the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA) until November 15, 2017.

This renewed mandate will allow MINUSCA to better protect civilians and deal with armed groups.

It expands its role in the country’s long-term stabilization by giving it additional responsibilities, particularly in the areas of disarmament and reforms of the security and justice systems. MINUSCA will also provide support for the elected Central African government in its efforts to conduct an inclusive national dialogue and reestablish state authority over the entire country.

Together with the UN and its international partners, France will continue to support the Central African Republic.
