UN calls for reconciliation in Central African Republic

27 July 2016, 16:03

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. Security Council is calling on the Central African Republic's president to urgently promote reconciliation between Muslims and Christians and reunify the country that has been plagued by sectarian violence.

In a resolution adopted unanimously by the council on Tuesday, the U.N. extended its peacekeeping mission in the troubled country until Nov. 15, 2017. The council authorized reauthorized the force at its current strength of nearly 11,000 peacekeepers with an immediate priority to protect civilians, monitor human rights and enable the safe delivery of humanitarian aid.

The council expressed support for President Faustin Archange Touadera who was inaugurated on March 30.

Rebels overthrew CAR's president in 2013 and sectarian violence followed. While elections earlier this year were peaceful, there are fears the country is again teetering on the edge.
