Resolution 2127 (Central African Republic) S/RES/2127
The UN Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2127 on 5 December in response to the situation in the Central African Republic. The Council agreed to mandate the African Union International Support Mission in the Central African Republic, MISCA, with the support of French forces, to use all necessary measures to protect civilians and restore security. The resolution called for greater financial and logistical support to MISCA, including through the establishment of a UN Trust Fund. A UN commission of inquiry, an arms embargo, and the intent to consider targeted sanctions was also included in Resolution 2127. The resolution noted that MISCA may require eventual transformation to a UN peacekeeping operation, and that its mandate would be reviewed within 6 months.
