The UN Security Council has adopted Resolution 2127 (2013) which, aside from authorising an African-led International Support Mission, imposes a one-year arms embargo on the Central African Republic (“CAR”) and mandates all UN Member States to take measures to prevent the direct or indirect supply, sale or transfer of “arms and related materiel of all types” to the CAR.

The Council further expressed its “strong intent to swiftly consider imposing targeted measures”, such as travel bans and asset freezes, against individuals who have acted to undermine peace, stability and security in the CAR. A committee has been established to monitor the implementation of any such targeted measures and report back on its work within 60 days.
