We are deeply concerned by the increase in violence in Central African Republic (CAR) over the past seven days. I strongly condemn sectarian attacks, provocations and incitement to violence against civilians, refugees and military personnel on the ground.

The UK is committed to working with international organisations such as the UN and EU to ensure an effective response to the ongoing security and humanitarian crises. I met with President Touadera in September at the UN General Assembly and I expressed the UK's strong support for stabilising CAR.
