The Central African Republic (CAR) needs direct and indirect support from the UN Mission there amidst a continuing "volatile" security situation.

Speaking at the end of a visit to CAR, Under-Secretary-General for Field Support, Atul Khare, said it was important for the Security Council to give the UN Mission, MINUSCA, an extended mandate to help stabilize the country.

And he said that he would be taking "very strong action" against any UN personnel or peacekeepers, found to have carried out sexual abuse, following dozens of cases in recent months.

Jean Pierre Ramazani, asked Mr Khare what the UN's priorities were now for MINUSCA going forward.
