Central African Republic: Religious Freedom

Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN 110904, tabled on 1 November 2017

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what support his Department is providing to the women of Boda, Central African Republic, and their mission for an end to violence between Christians and Muslims in that region.

We remain deeply concerned by the violence in the Central African Republic. The fact that the unrest has spread to locations and communities, such as Boda, which were previously relatively untouched is particularly troubling. In our position as a member of the UN Security Council we are committed to ensuring that the United Nations peacekeeping mission (MINUSCA) has the tools to provide effective protection for civilians, specifically the most vulnerable, such as women and children.
