Marie-Noëlle Koyara, the CAR’s Minister of National Defence and Army Reconstruction, noted this Sunday, December 3, during an interview with journalists at her offices in the capital, Bangui.

Koyara again used the occasion to thank the people, government of Rwanda and President Paul Kagame “for understanding that it was necessary” to save the people of her country from the threat posed by a myriad of rebels.
“As you well know, our army is undergoing reconstruction. And, very rapidly, a friendly country with which we have a bilateral agreement provided us with forces to help its CAR brothers protect the population,” Koyara said.
“There is nothing more important than saying, thank you to the people of Rwanda for this laudable act which is humanitarian and that serves as a good example to other African countries.”

Koyara told reporters that her government appealed to the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) for help and it was Rwanda that made the first step.

The 12-member bloc of which Rwanda is a member aims to achieve collective autonomy, raise the standard of living of its populations and maintain economic stability through harmonious cooperation.
