And so, everything is connected. In Bambari we saw attacks, unacceptable provocations, and MINUSCA took its responsibility. The United Nations took its responsibility and sent a message, which I think was clear, to the perpetrators. And we are determined to continue to do so if necessary."

STORYLINE:

In a meeting with Central African President Faustin-Archange Touadéra, UN peacekeeping chief Jean-Pierre Lacroix expressed the United Nations’ total commitment to do everything so that dialogue set to take place later this month is “crowned with success.”

Lacroix met the President for the second time before departing from a four-day visit to the Central African Republic (CAR) accompanied by the head of the UN peacekeeping mission in the country (MINUSCA).

The peacekeeping chief said MINUSCA would not hesitate to use force, in accordance with its mandate, in the event of an attack by armed groups. This was proven this week in Bambari, in the center of the country, where MINUSCA put an end to the violence perpetrated since 9 January by an armed group close to the former Seleka.

Lacroix said violence is “in any way unacceptable, but it is even more unacceptable today while this important prospect of dialogue is open which allows hope that peace will regain its right of citizenship in the Central African Republic.” He said MINUSCA upheld its responsibilities in Bambari adding that the UN was “determined to continue to do so if necessary."

The government's inclusive dialogue with all armed groups is scheduled to resume on January 24 in Khartoum, under the auspices of the African Union.
