BANGUI: His Excellency President Archange Touadéra has reaffirmed his commitment to the
implementation of interventions addressing the proliferation of illicit small arms and light
weapons in the Central African Republic. Speaking when he received a high-level delegation of
the RECSA Secretariat, led by the Executive Secretary Lt. Gen. Badreldin Elamin Abdelgadir on
27 th July 2018, H.E. Touadéra, hailed regional efforts on arms control implemented by RECSA
under the framework of the Nairobi Protocol. He also pledged to ensure Bangui honors its
financial obligations to RECSA and to support the CAR National Commission to execute its
mandate of control and management of SALW.
Lt. Gen. Abdelgadir offered assurances of cooperation in implementing RECSA’s mandate and
informed the President of the activities the Secretariat would implement to benefit CAR under a
project funded by the African Development Bank. These include: capacity-building of the
national commission through training and provision of office equipment; as well as a national-
level training in weapons and ammunition management (PSSM) for 40 armorers.
The RECSA delegation led by its Executive secretary also held meetings with the National
Commission on SALW to deliberate cooperation and implementation of the activities. The
delegation also paid courtesy calls to the Minister of Interior and Public Security as well as the
Minister for Foreign Affairs.
The RECSA delegation also visited the National program for recovery and aid Coordination and
held discussions with its director general and his Team. Discussions were focused on the
RECSA’s interventions in CAR and the officials demonstrated their will to support the National
commission as its mandate corresponds with the pillar one of their national action Plan in the
DDR/SSR Component.
