2. SOUNDBITE (French) Parfait Onanga-Anyanga, Special Representative of the Secretary-General for the Central African Republic and Head of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA):
“I am here today to talk about the violence and atrocities which continue to affect the major part of the civil population, in the country there’s violence and unacceptable atrocities and human rights violations perpetrated by the arm groups who have not yet renounced violence and have not accepted outstretched hand of dialogue by the Government.”

4. SOUNDBITE (French) Parfait Onanga-Anyanga, Special Representative of the Secretary-General for the Central African Republic and Head of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA):
“The consequence of this recalls for us that despite our efforts, the pathway of peace, stability and reconciliation in the country remains long and arduous. The return of refugees and the IDPs remain compromised. The human tragedy further darkens the humanitarian picture which is already very grim, with the life of about half of the Central African population would be unimaginable without emergency humanitarian assistance.”

6. SOUNDBITE (English) Parfait Onanga-Anyanga, Special Representative of the Secretary-General for the Central African Republic and Head of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA):
“As just briefly outlined, and as challenging as things are, the picture in the Central African Republic is not as hopeless as the raw numbers and media reports make it appear. With the continuous support of this Council, the sacrifices and dedication of all – and first and foremost that of the Central Africans themselves – there are reasons to remain hopeful and to believe that an era of peace, stability and prosperity can soon be within reach.”
