Paris, January 20, 2014

France welcomes the international community’s pledge today in Brussels to make $496 million available for humanitarian assistance and stabilization efforts in the Central African Republic. M. Pascal Canfin, Minister Delegate for Development, confirmed that France will play its full part in this effort, announcing a contribution of €35 million.

To meet the Central African people’s essential needs, which the UN estimates at $550 million, it is necessary for international donors to continue to be mobilized, particularly in the run-up to the African Union-organized conference in Addis Ababa on 1 February 2014./.
