    The statement was published on the Facebook page of the CAR Foreign Ministry, in which Mrs. Temon expressed her strong indignation regarding the approach of international organizations in terms of their policy in the CAR. In particular, she condemned the start of negotiations between the United Nations and armed groups.

    “The United Nations has replaced the League of Nations which had failed to prevent World War II. Isn’t it right about time to dissolve the UN, whose main task is to preserve and maintain peace, while more and more conflicts have been appearing since its inception?” the statement said.

    The minister drew a parallel between the current situation in the CAR and the events in Kigali in 1994. The UN member states stopped supporting the UN Mission in Rwanda (MINUAR), which had forced millions of people deal with the consequences of the genocide themselves.

    In Bangui, the capital of the CAR, the UN is negotiating with the illegal armed groups and allowing Western countries to interfere in the CAR’s politics. The diplomat stressed that it was one the main reasons why the Central African Republic could not restore the truce.

    It is noteworthy that the CAR Minister of Foreign Affairs had been visiting Rwanda in order to reach new agreements in the field of security and investment. Certain results have been already achieved. In particular, parties agreed to continue cooperation in the military sector.
