Helping former combatants in the Central African Republic (CAR) to return to civilian life is expected to continue under the country's new leadership.

That's according to UN peacekeeping chief Hervé Ladsous who was in the CAR this week to attend the inauguration of its new President on Wednesday.

Faustin-Archange Touadéra has taken over from transitional authorities in a country that has been plagued by more than three years of fighting between Christian and Muslim armed groups.

The UN mission in the country (MINUSCA) has been working to disarm, demobilize, reintegrate and even repatriate ex-combatants; a process known as "DDRR."

Maha Fayek asked Mr Ladsous about his meeting with the President.
