The Peace and Security Council of the African Union (AU), at its 454th meeting held on 27 August 2014, was briefed by the Commission on the situation in the Central African Republic (CAR). Council also followed the statements made by the representatives of Chad, Chair of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), the European Union (EU), France and the United Kingdom.

Council reiterated its earlier statements on the situation in the CAR and the need for continued efforts towards the promotion of lasting peace, security, stability and reconciliation in the country. 

Council welcomed the efforts of the African-led International Support Mission in the CAR (MISCA), which resulted into a significant improvement of the situation on the ground, noting the planned transformation of MISCA into a United Nations peacekeeping operation. 

Council further welcomed the outcome of the Reconciliation Forum held in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo, from 21 to 23 July 2014, under the auspices of the Mediator of the ECCAS in the CAR crisis, President Denis Sassou-Nguesso, and the signing of a Ceasefire Agreement by the CAR stakeholders. Council called on the CAR stakeholders to build on this achievement, in order to successfully complete the ongoing transition in their country and effectively address the challenges facing it. 

Council agreed to review in due course the situation in the CAR.
