United Nations – Appointment of a special envoy for the Horn of Africa (14 March 2019)

France welcomes the appointment by the UN secretary-general of Parfait Onanga-Anyanga (Gabon) as special envoy for the Horn of Africa.

In a region that is experiencing a historic momentum for peace, which must be consolidated, Parfait Onanga-Anyanga will notably be responsible, through his mediation and in collaboration with regional actors, for facilitating dialogue and cooperation between states in the region.

Building on the collaboration enjoyed during his tenure as special representative of the UN secretary-general for the Central African Republic and Head of MINUSCA, Parfait Onanga-Anyanga can count on France’s full support in performing his duties.
