Ambassador Richard Mills Deputy U.S. Representative to the United Nations New York, New York, November 12, 2021
Thank you, Mr. President. And let me begin by thanking France for its work as penholder. The United States voted in favor of today’s resolution because it reinforces this Council’s support for MINUSCA’s critical work. It affirms the centrality of the 2019 Political Accord for Peace and Reconciliation, recognizes the important contributions of the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region to CAR’s peace process, and it endorses President Touadera’s October 15 unilateral ceasefire. This mandate reinforces the importance of respect for the Status of Forces Agreement between the Central African Republic and MINUSCA, and it supports the crucial work of the government’s Special Commission of Inquiry to investigate human rights abuses and violations.
