2 August 2013 - Central African Republic / Launch of the African-Led International Support Mission in the Central African Republic (AFISM-CAR)

Statement by the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

France welcomes the establishment of the African-Led International Support Mission in the Central African Republic (AFISM-CAR) which took over from the Mission for the Consolidation of Peace in the Central African Republic (MICOPAX) on August 1, in accordance with the decisions of the Peace and Security Council of the African Union.

We pay tribute to the action of the Economic Community of Central African States in support of re-establishing security and the rule of law in the Central African Republic, notably through MICOPAX.

We reaffirm our full support for the African Union’s efforts to find a lasting solution to the crisis in the Central African Republic. The African initiatives must be supported by increased mobilization on the part of the international community, both within the United Nations and the EU, whose humanitarian commitment we commend.
