disarming combatants

The Central African Republic is making efforts to disarm, demobilize and reintegrate fighters into society but needs support from the international community.

That's what the head of the UN Peacebuilding Office in the country (BINUCA) told a meeting of the Friends of the Central African Republic held at United Nations headquarters in New York on Thursday.

Margaret Vogt said that $19 million dollars is needed for the programme of the disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of combatants.

Ms. Vogt told Jean-Pierre Ramazani that she hopes that BINUCA will get a positive response from donors in the coming days in order to complete the first two phases of the programme.
