UN Peacekeeping Official Visits Chad

UN Peacekeeping Official Visits Chad And Central African Republic

New York, Sep 2 2008 4:10PM

A senior United Nations peacekeeping official is visiting Chad and the Central African Republic (CAR) for talks on the performance of the nascent UN mission to the neighbouring African countries.

Edmond Mulet, the Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping, and the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Chad and the CAR, Victor Angelo, held talks yesterday with Chadian President Idriss Déby in N’Djamena. They are scheduled to hold talks in Bangui, the capital of the CAR, today.

The UN Mission in Chad and the Central African Republic (MINURCAT) was established six months ago. It includes a multi-dimensional UN presence and a European Union military force (EUFOR) that are jointly trying to bring stability to eastern Chad and north-eastern CAR, which have been beset by widespread fighting and civilian displacement in recent years.
