The UN Security Council has adopted Resolution 2134 (2014), which renews the arms embargo imposed on the CAR by Resolution 2127 (2013) until 28 January 2015, and imposes asset freezes and travel bans on, amongst others, individuals and entities designated by the Security Council Committee established to oversee the CAR sanctions; violating the arms embargo; actively engaging in the armed conflict; or acting on behalf of or at the direction of a designated individual or entity.

The arms embargo prohibits the direct or indirect supply, sale or transfer of arms or related materiel, from member states’ territories or by their nationals, or using their flag vessel or aircraft to the CAR.
