UNOAU attends the fifty-first meeting of the UNSAC in Bujumbura
On 28 May, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) and Head of UNOAU Hanna Tetteh participated in the 51st ministerial meeting of the UN Standing Advisory Committee on Security issues in Central Africa (UNSAC), in Bujumbura, Burundi. In her intervention, SRSG Tetteh focused on the ongoing peace process in the Central African Republic (CAR) and on the transition in Chad, referring to the situations as unstable, difficult and adversely impacting both countries and their neighbors.
SRSG Tetteh underscored the United Nations' constant and continued contact with the government and other political stakeholders and partners, providing critical political, humanitarian, logistical, and operational support to facilitate the implementation of the 2019 Political Agreement for Peace and Reconciliation in the CAR, working with, among others, the ECCAS and ICGLR fraternity, and called upon all UNSAC Members to support all efforts aimed at the full implementation of the Peace agreement. On the Chad situation, she observed that the complexity of the current political and security situation in the country requires targeted support to the transitional institutions and reaffirmed the support of the UN, working with the ECCAS and other regional actors, to accompany the transition institutions in the efforts to re-establish constitutional order in the country.
