Kuwait Times - - In­ter­na­tional -

UNITED NA­TIONS: The UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil on Mon­day im­posed sanc­tions on Cen­tral African Repub­lic rebel leader Ab­doulaye Misk­ine, who last year signed a peace agree­ment be­tween the gov­ern­ment and armed groups. Misk­ine, founder and head of the Demo­cratic Front of the Cen­tral African Peo­ple (FDPC), was of­fered a gov­ern­ment po­si­tion un­der the terms of the Fe­bru­ary 2019 ac­cord. How­ever, in the last re­port by UN ex­perts mon­i­tor­ing sanc­tions and an arms em­bargo im­posed in 2013, the self-pro­claimed gen­eral was men­tioned as look­ing for fight­ers. De­spite the sign­ing of the agree­ment, Misk­ine “re­mains a threat to the peace, sta­bil­ity and se­cu­rity of the CAR,” a diplo­mat said. Misk­ine had signed the peace agree­ment in Khar­toum be­tween CAR Pres­i­dent FaustinAr­change Touadera and the heads of 14 armed groups. — AFP
