On 30th January, the UN announced that it had extended its sanctions regime against the Central African Republic, consisting of an arms embargo, travel ban and asset freeze on listed individuals and entities, until 31st January 2019, and the mandate of the Panel of Experts facilitating those measures until 28h February 2019.  The arms embargo would not apply to supplies intended solely for the support or use by the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA), EU training missions, French forces and other State forces providing training.  Nor would it apply to supplies brought into the Central African by Chad or Sudan forces solely for their use in the tripartite force established on 23rd May 2011.
