The Russian Foreign Ministry highlighted that February 6, 2020 marks one year since the CAR peace agreement between the country’s government and armed groups active on its territory.
“The implementation of these agreements has become a landmark event in CAR’s political life, jumpstarting the process of national accord,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
Russia is set to continue to aid the process of national accord in the Central African Republic (CAR) in cooperation with the country’s government, the African Union and the United Nations, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.
“We continue to support the process of national accord in the Central African Republic, working in close coordination with the country’s government led by President Faustin-Archange Touadera, the African Union and CAR’s international partners, as well as within the platform of the UN and its Security Council,” the ministry said.
Russia “aims to continue providing comprehensive support to CAR with the goal of regulating the situation, namely through aiding defense reforms,” the ministry stated.
“We are confident that raising the capacity and training of the national army and law enforcement will help combat the activity of illegal armed formations, ensure the protection of civil population and facilitate the spread of state authority on the entire territory of CAR,” the Russian Foreign Ministry pointed out.
