France Welcomes U.S. Contribution to MISCA [AFISM-CAR]
France welcomes the decision by the American authorities to make a further financial contribution to the African force currently being deployed in the Central African Republic (MISCA [AFISM-CAR]). This support is notably in addition to the contribution amounting to €50 million announced by the EU.
This commitment constitutes major support for the efforts of the African states - with France’s support - to resolve the crisis and help the people of the CAR. It confirms the commitment of the United States, with which we have been working very closely since the start of the crisis, notably within the UN Security Council.
The international community’s mobilization is essential in order to allow MISCA to effectively carry out the missions conferred upon it under UNSCR 2127 (2013).
