- On 7 July 2011, Margaret Vogt, Special Representative of the Secretary General in the Central African Republic presented to the Security Council a report on the security situation in Central African Republic and on the activities of the United Nations Integrated Peacebuilding Office in that country. After private consultations, the President of the Security Council issued a press statement stating the peacebuilding priorities in CAR: firm commitments for better governance, the launch of the disarmament, demobilization and reintegration process (DDR)and the security sector reform (SSR).

- The mandate of the UN Mission in CAR and Chad (MINURCAT) ended on 31 December 2010, pursuant to resolution 1923 of the Security Council.

- On 14 December 2011, Margaret Vogt, Special Representative of the Secretary General in the Central African Republic presented to the Security Council a report on the activities of the United Nations Integrated Peacebuilding Office and on general situation in Central African Republic. The Representative welcomed the significant progress in the disarmament and demobilization process with more than 4,700 former combatants demobilized in the North-West region. Mrs. Vogt noted the government’s efforts in terms of political governance and welcomed the reform of the electoral code and the creation of a permanent secretariat responsible for the organization of future elections.

Despite all these efforts, the Special Representative expressed deep concern about the humanitarian situation in the country. The report described new displacements of civilians fleeing violence in many parts of the country. The presence of foreign armed groups in the north-west posed a serious threat to the stability of the country and the region. She also highlighted the critical lack of funding for humanitarian aid. The Special Representative urged the international community to act swiftly to preserve the peacebuilding process in this country

- On 21 December 2011, the Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 2031 extending until 31 January 2013 the mandate of the United Nations Integrated Peacebuilding Office in Central African Republic (BINUCA).

- On 6 June 2012, the Security Council heard the briefing by Ms. Margaret Vogt, Special Representative of the Secretary-General, on the activities of the United Nations Integrated Peacebuilding Office in the Central African Republic (BINUCA) and the situation in the country.

The Representative welcomed the Government’s efforts in light of the launch of a political dialogue with the opposition and the improvement of the security situation in the north-eastern border region.

She expressed deep concern about the surge of human rights violations committed by defence and security forces and over the presence of foreign armed militias that had been destabilizing many regions of the country.

On the initiative of France, the Security Council adopted a press statement in which it acknowledged the Government’s efforts, while emphasizing the political, security and human rights challenges to be addressed.

- On 18 December 2012, Mr. Abou Moussa, Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the United Nations Regional Office for Central Africa (UNOCA), briefed the Security Council on UNOCA’s work, especially in the fight against the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). He underlined the progresses of UNOCA in the field of preventive diplomacy since its creation in March 2012 and said that UNOCA was emblematic of the United Nations commitment in the region.

In his statement, the French Representative welcomed UNOCA’s efforts and recalled that, six months after its adoption, the implementation of the United Nations regional strategy on the fight against the LRA had to remain a priority. An action plan setting deadlines and concrete objectives could help in this endeavour.

- On 19 December 2012, Mr. Tayé-Brook Zerihoun, Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs, briefed the Council, in closed consultations, on the worrying situation in the Central African Republic after rebel groups captured several cities in the North-east of the country.

In a Security Council Press Statement presented at the initiative of France, the Security Council condemned the attacks and demanded that the armed groups immediately cease hostilities.

- On 27 December 2012, the Security Council issued a press statement condemning the continued attacks perpetrated by the “Seleka” coalition of armed groups which gravely undermine the Libreville Comprehensive Peace Agreement.

- On 3 January 2013, while rebels of the Seleka coalition had suspended their advance towards Bangui, the Security Council heard the briefing of Mr. Jeffrey Feltman, Under-Secretary-General for political affairs.

The Representative of France welcomed the mediation efforts of the regional organizations such as the African Union and the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), especially the negotiations between all parties to take place in Libreville, on 8 January 2013. While remaining vigilant to further developments in Central African Republic, the Security Council should continue to support African peace efforts.

The Security Council adopted a press statement proposed by France on 4 January 2013.

- On 11 January 2013, the Security Council heard the briefings of Mrs Vogt, Special Representative of the Secretary General in CAR and Head of BINUCA, and Mrs Bangura, Special Representative on Sexual Violence in Conflict.

This meeting took place a few hours after the announcement of an agreement reached in Libreville between the government and armed opposition groups, under the aegis of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS). This agreement provided in particular for a cease-fire and for the formation of a national unity government with President Bozizé.

The Representative of France welcomed the conclusion of this agreement; the challenge was now in its implementation. If its mandate was strategically reassessed, BINUCA would probably play a role in the follow-up mecanism of these negotiations.

After this meeting, the Security Council adopted a French-drafted press statement, expressing its support to African efforts to resolve the crisis, and calling for the implementation of Libreville agreements.

- On 20 March 2013, after Seleka members of the Central African Republic government broke their agreement with the CAR government and resumed the fight, the Security Council met in closed consultations to hear Mrs Margaret Vogt, Special Representative of the Secretary-General in Central African Republic, on the situation in the country.

Following these consultations, the Security Council adopted, at the initiative of France, a Press Statement condemning the attacks by Seleka and reminding the parties their duty to implement the Libreville Agreements in good faith.

- On 22 March 2013, while the Seleka rebels had forced a roadblock manned by the military force of Central African States (FOMAC) and were only twenty kilometers from the capital Bangui, the Security Council met in closed consultations to hear Mr. Taye-Brook Zerihoun, Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs, the present situation in the country. Tayé-Brook Zerihoun, Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs

The Representative of France expressed his deep concern, saying that the rebel advance towards Bangui was an incontestable proof of the seriousness of the situation. He also stressed that the FOMAC was not prepared to deal with rebels.

Following the consultations, the Security Council adopted, to the initiative of France, a press statement calling on all the parties to respect the International Humanitarian law, the Human Rights and to ensure the protection of civilians.

- On 25 March 2013, as the Séléka rebels had taken Bangui and Michel Djotodia declared himself President of the Central African Republic, M.Tayé Brook Zerihoun, Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs, reported to the Security Council the latest developments in the country.

The Representative of France condemned the unconstitutional change of government, noting that the security situation was very unstable. He stressed that the Libreville agreement was the only existing basis for a peaceful solution in the Central African Republic and that it was the duty of the Security Council to remind to the perpetrators of violations of Human Rights that they would be held accountable for their action.

Following the consultations, the Security Council adopted, to the initiative of France, a press statement strongly condemning the seizure of power by force in the Central African Republic and calling on all parties to refrain from any acts of violence against civilians.

- On 9 April 2013, Mrs Vogt, Special Representative of the Secretary-General in Central African Republic, briefed the Security Council on the latest developments in the country after Michel Djotodia accepted on 4th April the transition plan discussed on the 3rd April by the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) at the N’Djamena summit.

The French Representative reminded the need of an inclusive and rapid transition in Central African Republic, now running the risk of becoming a failed state. The Security Council will continue to pay the closest attention to the future N’Djamena summit, on 15 April, aiming at precising the procedures of this transition.

- On 29 April 2013, the Security Council gathered in closed consultations to hear the briefing by Mr. Feltman, Under Secretary-General for Political Affairs, on the situation in the country. The French Representative said it was alarming, be it at the securitarian or humanitarian level. At the initiative of France, the Council adopted a press statement expressing its strong concern on the matter and calling on competent authorities to restore peace.

- On 15 May 2013, the Security Council gathered in the presence of Mr. Nicolas Tiangaye, Prime Minister of the Central African Republic, and of the Permanent Representative of Tchad to hear the briefing by Mrs. Margaret Vogt, Special Representative of the Secretary General in the Central African Republic.

She reported looting and mass violations of Human rights, while Michel Djotodia did not respect his commitments towards the Central African people and the international community.

During the following closed consultations, the French Representative showed grave concern on the suffering and distress of the Central African people. While the summits in N’Djamena and Brazzaville contributed to set the outlines of a political transition which would put an end to the crisis, the re-establishment of security, an absolute requirement to launch this transition, was an emergency.

- On 29 May 2013, Mr Abou Moussa, Special Representative of the Secretary-General, presented to the Security Council the SG fourth report on the situation in Central Africa, UNOCA activities and recent achievements in the fight against LRA activities.

In its statement, the representative of France stressed out the need to pursue stabilization efforts in CAR while combating LRA in the region, which had killed more than 100.000 people and displaced 2.5 millions of others for the last 25 years.

Following this meeting, the Security Council adopted a presidential statement condemning the violations by the LRA of Human Rights and humanitarian law.

- On 14 August 2013, the Security Council met to examine the crisis in the Central African Republic. On this occasion, the members of the Council heard Valérie Amos, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Babacar Gaye, Special Representative and Head of the United Nations Integrated Peacebuilding Office for the Central African Republic (BINUCA) and Ivan Simonovic, Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights. The speakers deplored the preoccupying deterioration of the humanitarian and security situation in the Central African Republic and they described the situation as volatile. Moreover, they called for the support of the Security Council regarding the deployment of the new stabilization mission in the Central African Republic (MISCA)

During the private consultations that followed, the Representative of France encouraged the Security Council to give more support to the BINUCA to allow it to better deliver its mandate. He also asked the Council to fully support the Economic Community of Central African States and the African Union for the deployment of MISCA.

Following the consultation, the Security Council adopted a Press Statement.

- On 25 September 2013, Mr. Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs, co- chaired a meeting on the humanitarian situation in the Central African Republic, with Mrs. Kristalina Georgieva, EU Commissioner responsible for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, and Mrs. Valerie Amos, UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator.

During this meeting , Mr. Laurent Fabius stressed the seriousness of the situation in the Central African Republic, which is subject to various regional threats (LRA and Boko Haram in particular), and highlighted the necessity to act quickly in order to avoid the implosion of the country and the destabilization of the entire region. He also stressed the importance of a good coordination of the international community to this effect, and the need for convincing political progress within the country in order to allow the holding of free elections. He called for quick action by the Security Council to support stabilization efforts undertaken by the African Union, which has recently deployed the International Support Mission in the Central African Republic (MISCA).

Following this meeting, Mr. Fabius made some remarks to the press.

- 10 October 2013. The Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 2121 presented by France, on the Central African Republic, demanding a peaceful and political resolution to the conflict. Seriously concerned by the deteriorating security situation and widespread human rights abuses in CAR, the members of the Council expressed their readiness to consider “appropriate measures” against those who those who undermine peace, stability and security .

The resolution demands the swift implementation by the transitional authorities of the Libreville Agreement ( January 2013) and of the N’Djamena Summit Road Map ( April 2013 ), which should lead to the organization of free, fair and transparent presidential and legislative elections. The deadline set is 18 months after the beginning of the transition period, which started with the inauguration of President Djotodia on 18 August 2013 . This transition process and the timetable will be supported by BINUCA (United Nations Integrated Peacebuilding Office in the Central African Republic). The Office, whose mandate was strengthened by the resolution, will also provide support for conflict prevention and humanitarian assistance, and for stabilization of the security situation. Finally, the text request the Secretary- General to present options for a UN support to the deployment of MISCA (African-led International Support Mission in the CAR), including the possible option of a transformation of MISCA into a UN peacekeeping operation .

Following this public meeting, the Representative of France, Mr Gérard Araud, spoke to the press. Welcoming the adoption of the resolution, he recalled the involvement of France, of the President of the Republic and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, in the resolution of the Central African crisis. For France, it is a first step in the political mobilization which will be completed next month with the Secretary-General’s report, which will present to the Security Council options for UN support to the African force.

- On 1 November 2013, Mr. Gérard Araud, the Representative of France, and Mr. Eugène-Richard Gasana, the Representative of Rwanda, co-chaired an informal meeting of the Security Council on humanitarian situation and the violations of human rights in the Central African Republic, with Mr. Adama Dieng, Under-Secretay-General, Special Adviser to the UN Secretary-General on the Prevention of Genocide, Mr. Ivan Simonovic, Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights, Mr. John Ging, Director of Operations of the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), and Mrs. Brigitte Balipou, lawyer of the Central African Republic and member of the organization "Femmes Africa Solidarité" (Women Africa Solidarity).

During this meeting, the four briefers highlighted the grave humanitarian and human rights situation in the Central African Republic. Massive violations (lootings, rapes, abductions, summary executions, recruitment of child soldiers), were committed across the country by armed groups, based in particular on ethnic and religious origins. In this context, the interim authorities were not able to fulfill their responsibilities of protection of civilians. In order to avoid the implosion of the country and the destabilization of the region, quick and decisive action needed to be undertaken by the international community to restore security and protection of civilians. Impunity had to end, in particular for uncontrolled elements of the Séléka coalition who were preventing the proper functioning of the institutions since the coup in March 2013.

The Representative of France recalled efforts made to encourage a reaction of the international community in order to restore order and security in the country. The Security Council’s responsibility was to support and assist efforts of MISCA, the African Union’s peacekeeping force in the Central African Republic. In this regard, France encouraged the adoption of a Security Council resolution to support the African Union force and potentially prepare a United Nations peacekeeping operation. Following this meeting, Mr. Araud made some remarks to the press.

- On 20 November 2013, Mr Abou Moussa, Special Representative of the Secretary-General and head of UN Office in Central Africa (UNOCA), presented to the members of the Security Council his fifth report on the situation in Central Africa, UNOCA activities and recent achievements in the fight against LRA activities. Many challenges remained in Central Africa. The Special Representative expressed concerns about the instability in the CAR, which posed a major threat to peace and security in the region. The security, humanitarian and human rights situation was deteriorating. Political transition remained fragile and the increase of inter-communal violence was alarming.

Mr. Abou Moussa also expressed concerns concerning transnational crime, including acts of piracy in the Gulf of Guinea. He also evoked poaching and trafficking in arms, as main sources of financing for the armed groups.

UNOCA, in close collaboration with the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), had sought dialogue between the latter and the African Union. Concerning the fight against LRA, Mr. Abou Moussa noted some progress, through regional cooperation initiatives.

In his statement, the representative of France expressed concerns about the humanitarian situation in the CAR. Over one million people suffered from food insecurity, 40000 were displaced. Abuses, violence and killings took place on an almost daily basis. The State no longer existed. The international community had to act quickly.

UNOCA should also play an important role with regional and sub-regional organizations, as security, political and humanitarian challenges requested coordination of the whole range of stakeholders. The permanent representative finally welcomed efforts of the ECCAS and the African Union that had deployed the African-led International Support Mission to the Central African Republic (MISCA). They deserved the support from the United Nations, as well as from all the States concerned. Concerning the fight against LRA, the representative welcomed the coercive actions of the African Union. The priority now was to ensure that the LRA did not benefit from the security vacuum in the CAR to prosper. In this regard, States affected by LRA had a leading role to play together with the African Union.

Following this meeting, the Security Council adopted a presidential statement condemning the violations by the LRA of Human Rights and humanitarian law.

- On 25 November 2013, the Security Council met to examine the crisis in the Central African Republic. On this occasion, the members of the Council heard Mr. Jan Eliasson, United Nations Deputy Secretary-General, Mr. Ahmad Allam-Mi, Secretary-General of the ECCAS, and Mr. Babacar Gaye, Special Representative and Head of the United Nations Integrated Peacebuilding Office for the Central African Republic (BINUCA). The speakers deplored the preoccupying deterioration of the humanitarian and security situation in the Central African Republic, with total collapse of law and order and numerous human rights violations by ex- Seleka members against the civilian population. In view of preventing new atrocities, Mr. Eliasson called for prompt and decisive action of the Security Council, in order to restore the security in the country. He also called for stronger support to the African-led International Support Mission to the Central African Republic (MISCA) so that it can fully carry out its stabilization mission. One of the privileged solutions was to transform the MISCA into a United Nations peacekeeping operation.

During the private consultations that followed, the Representative of France expressed concerns about the gravity of the humanitarian and security situation. The State was threatening to get away with inter-sectarian violence, with a risk of mass atrocities. The Council had a collective responsibility to prevent the generalization of atrocities.

Following these consultations, the permanent representative of France made some remarks to the press.

- On 5 December 2013, the Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 2127

The permanent representative of France deplored the tragedy of the situation in the Central African Republic. The whole population was affected by a humanitarian crisis and the country was threatening to get away with inter-sectarian violence and to fall into chaos. While the CAR had been until now a forgotten crisis, the permanent representative estimated that it was the collective duty of the Council to support the action of the African Union and the ECCAS. The adoption of resolution 2127 enabled the Council to take the expected steps to this end, by giving the African Force, MISCA, as well as the French Forces, a robust mandate under Chapter VII. This resolution also reinforced the Council’s action on two essential areas: the fights against human rights violations, as well as support for the transition process and the intention to adopt sanctions on individuals who would threaten it.

- On 6 January, the Security Council met to examine the situation in the Central African Republic. On this occasion, the members of the Council heard Mr. Jeffrey Feltman, Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, and Mr. Tete Antonio, Permanent Observer of the African Union to the United Nations. The speakers deplored the preoccupying deterioration of the humanitarian and security situation, with serious disturbances subsequent to the anti-Balaka attacks of 5 December in Bangui. Nevertheless, Mr. Feltman welcomed the rapid deployment of MISCA, supported by the French forces, preventing the situation from degenerating into higher levels of violence. It had to be supported. In this regard, he welcomed the Donor’s Conference planned for next February. He finally called the transitional authorities to do more to stamp out human rights violations and recalled that it was a collective responsibility to stop the violence.

During the private consultations that followed, the Representative of France expressed concerns about the deterioration of the situation, with atrocities on a large scale at the time of the adoption of resolution 2127, and the risk of a deterioration into an inter-confessional conflict. However, the adoption of the resolution and the decisive action of the French and African Union forces enabled to contain the atrocities. The increase of the French Sangaris forces in support of MISCA was made around two main objectives, which had had significant results. The first was the protection of civilians and the improvement of the humanitarian situation, 1/5th of the population was displaced and almost half was in need of humanitarian assistance. The second objective was the disarmament of all armed groups. The solution to the crisis could nevertheless not be military but must be political. Stabilization could only be achieved through the acceleration of the timetable for the elections, the implementation of a DDR program with the support of the United Nations and the promotion of national reconciliation through the fight against impunity and interreligious dialogue. In this regard, France would introduce a resolution to renew BINUCA’s mandate and to give it the necessary means to fulfil its mission. It was indeed essential for the adequate financial and human resources to be allocated to the United Nations on the ground.

- On January 22 2014, the Security Council met in order to discuss the crisis in the Central African Republic (CAR), including its humanitarian and human rights aspects. Special representatives of the Secretary-general for Children and Armed Conflict (Ms. Leila Zerrougui); for the Prevention of Genocide (Mr. Adama Dieng); for Sexual Violence in Conflict (Ms. Zainab Bangura); and for Humanitarian Affairs (Ms. Kyung-wha Kang )presented what was at stake on the field. The briefers exposed deep concerns at mass crimes committed in CAR. They commended the coordinated action of African and French troops for the protection of civilians. During the closed consultations that followed, the Permanent Representative of France exposed strong concern at the humanitarian situation and mentioned the risk of a genocidal spiral. He recalled that the restoration of security in the country was a priority for the African and French troops in CAR. He pointed out a few encouraging signs such as the mobilization of the international community on humanitarian aid (total commitments of $500 million donation scheduled) as well as Ms. Catherine Samba-Panza’s election as interim President by the National Transitional Council. Finally, Mr Araud introduced a draft resolution in preparation aimed at renewing and reinforcing the mandate of the political office in CAR (BINUCA) and at authorizing the deployment of a European Union force in support of MISCA.

- On 28 January 2014, the Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 2134 presented by France. This resolution gives a UN mandate under Chapter VII to the European Union force that will be deployed in the Central African Republic (CAR), in support of MISCA (African Union) and Sangaris (France). The resolution also requests acceleration of the transitional phase in CAR with elections to be held by the end of 2014, if possible. the resolution also sets a UN sanctions’ regime against those who undermine the political process or commit human rights rights violations.

- On 20 February 2014, the Security Council met to discuss the crisis in the Central African Republic (CAR). The UN Secretary-general, Mr Ban Ki-moon, the African Union (AU) High Commissioner on peace and security, Mr Smaïl Chergui, and the Permanent Representative of the CAR, Mr Mesmin Dembassa Worogagoi briefed the Council.

Mr Ban called for a global and integrated response to this crisis. To that effect he announced that, next week, he would present recommendations on the deployment of a peacekeeping mission in the CAR with a strong mandate. Considering the deployment of such a mission would take a few months, he proposed interim measures aiming at strengthening the logistical support to MISCA.

Mr Chergui commended the common action of the UN and the AU in the CAR. He reminded that MISCA was ready to take over new missions such as the protection of the leaders of the transition and the transport of humanitarian aid. He mentioned the upcoming transformation of the MISCA into a peacekeeping mission.

The Permanent Representative of the CAR talked of a still volatile situation on the ground that implicated serious violations of human rights. He backed the proposal of a peacekeeping mission in the CAR.

During the informal dialogue between members of the Council and Mr Chergui that followed, the Permanent Representative of France reminded that the role of the forces currently deployed in the CAR was to stabilize the security situation in the country which remained the biggest problem to solve. M. Araud underlined that, while waiting for the deployment of a peacekeeping mission, the lack of police forces in the CAR was a priority. He supported a logistical support to MISCA that would allow, in the meantime, to consolidate the peacekeeping mission to come.

- On 21 February 2014, the Security Council met in private consultations to continue discussions on the crisis in the Central African Republic (CAR). Mr Jeffrey Feltman, Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs briefed the Council on the situation on the ground. The Permanent Representative of Lithuania, Mrs Raimonda Murmokaitė, president of the new 2127 sanctions committee for the CAR, gave an account of the work of the committee to the members’ states.

The Permanent Representative of France renewed his support to the Secretary-general’s proposal of a peacekeeping mission made the day before. He reminded that security matters were the highest priority in the CAR. To that effect, he repeated his support to a logistic backing to the MISCA troops prior to the deployment of a peacekeeping mission.

On the sanctions committee in the CAR, the French Representative commended the work of the president as well as the recent nomination of a panel of experts in charge of investigations on the ground.

- On 27 February 2014, as the Lithuanian presidency of the Security Council was ending, member states gathered in a private meeting to look back at the work of the Council during the month of February.

The Permanent Representative of France commended the holding of this meeting. He essentially focused on the crisis in the Central African Republic (CAR). He commended the joint efforts of the African Union, the European Union and France which avoided the worsening of the situation in the CAR. He commended the mobilization of the Secretary-general on this crisis. He renewed his support to the project of a UN peacekeeping mission that the Council would soon have to examine. He recalled the importance of a cooperation between the UN and African actors, such as the African Union, in the resolution of this crisis.

- On 6 March 2014, the Security Council held a public meeting on the situation in the Central African Republic (CAR) following the circulation of the report of the Secretary-general on the CAR. Mr Herve Ladsous, Head of the Department of Peacekeeping Operations, Mrs Valerie Amos, Under-Secretary-General and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Mr Antonio Guterres, UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Mr Toussaint Kongo Doudou, Central African Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Mr Tete Antonio, permanent observer of the African Union to the United Nations participated to the meeting.

Mr Ladsous recalled the Secretary-general’s recommendation of the deployment of a peacekeeping mission. He reminded that the priorities in the CAR went beyond the restoration of security in the country. Efforts of the peacekeeping mission had to be focused on the protection of civilians, then on the restoration of the Central African state. He requested a strong engagement from the Council on the Secretary-general’s proposals.

Mrs Amos reported the mistrust between communities that humanitarian assistance alone would not resolve. M. Guterres reminded that national and international efforts to solve this crisis had to take into account the whole Central African territory and go beyond the organization of elections and the restoration of security. Mr Doudou called on member states of the Council to make the decision of implementing the peacekeeping mission as soon as possible considering the reality of the situation in the CAR. Mr Antonio supported the peacekeeping mission proposal from the Secretary-general and reminded that the success of MISCA was essential to the future accomplishments of this peacekeeping mission.

During closed consultations that followed, the Permanent Representative of France underlined the role of MISCA and of Sangaris forces in the recent improvement of the situation in the CAR. Nonetheless, he noted that an additional military commitment was necessary. A UN peacekeeping operation would strengthen the protection of civilians, encourage the political process and support Central African authorities.

The French Representative announced the circulation of a draft resolution shortly, authorizing the deployment of a peacekeeping mission.
