STATEMENT BY MARIE HARF, DEPUTY SPOKESPERSON

Deteriorating Situation in the Central African Republic

The United States is appalled by today’s reports of the murder of innocent women and children outside of Bangui. This horrifying account is the latest in a string of reports that illustrate the deteriorating humanitarian and security situation in the Central African Republic (CAR) that could lead to an escalation in violence and further atrocities.

We are working with our partners in the international community, including through our efforts on the United Nations Security Council, to find the swiftest and most effective vehicle for stabilizing the situation. We recently announced $40 million in assistance to the African Union-led stabilization mission (MISCA), to help protect civilians, and provide security throughout the country. We welcome France’s decision to reinforce its military presence in the Central African Republic.

The United States remains committed to supporting the international community’s efforts to find a solution that protect civilians, restores security, ensures greater humanitarian access, and puts CAR on a path back to democratic governance.
