The Central African Republic (CAR) continues to count on Russia’s assistance in major areas of cooperation, including security, newly re-elected President Faustin Touadera said.

When asked about whether he can confirm the AFP news agency reports about the planned withdrawal of Russian military instructors and defence equipment from the CAR, the president did not respond positively.

“Knowing the situation, we, therefore, call on the Russian Federation to continue to support us in the field of security, and many others,” Touadera said.

The clashed was between the forces backing Touadera and the supporters of his main rival and predecessor, Francois Bozize.

Besides, the country was rocked by several targeted attacks on UN peacekeepers, including the latest ambush that occurred on Monday.

During his second term in the office, Touadera said that his cabinet would carry on with the previously started schemes for security and peace, as well as launch several infrastructure and energy projects, and enhance agriculture.
