​We will continue to support international efforts to tackle the crisis in the Central African Republic (CAR) following the UK's departure from the EU. The UK currently contributes financially to the EU's training mission in CAR and we remain fully supportive of ongoing EU engagement, which plays a valuable role in training the armed forces of CAR to help bring peace and stability to the country. The UK is a leading contributor to the UN Peacekeeping Mission in CAR – around £40 million for the current mandate. We have also spent £111 million since 2013, tackling the humanitarian crisis.
