“In CAR, progress is real, but many challenges remain. The active role of the Mission remains essential to support the necessary adjustments to the peace process, the contours of which are drawn by the Peace Agreement, the joint roadmap, the republican dialogue, and the local elections. These tools for peace must be grasped fully and handled skillfully, always with the primary concern for protecting civilian populations. Once again, I call on the Government and the international community to support the implementation of resolution 2605 to bring stability, social cohesion, and development to all Central Africans in peace.”

“MINUSCA is working to remobilize all partners and is making optimal use of its good offices and its force to increase the contribution of international partners to the peace process and ensure, with all stakeholders, the credibility and integrity of the Agreement. It is in our common interest to work with the Government so that the guarantors and facilitators of the Peace Agreement of February 6, 2019, are fully involved in revitalizing the said Agreement through the implementation of the Roadmap for Peace and Reconciliation.”

“I encourage the Government to deploy all possible efforts to calm the political climate. I also call on the international community to continue supporting the organization of these elections, which stem from the Political Agreement for Peace and Reconciliation provisions. It would take some ten million US dollars to fund these elections fully.”

These tools for peace, he added, "must be grasped fully and handled skillfully, always with the primary concern for protecting civilian populations."

The Special Representative said, "MINUSCA is working to remobilize all partners and is making optimal use of its good offices and its force to increase the contribution of international partners to the peace process and ensure, with all stakeholders, the credibility and integrity of the Agreement."
