The task of the Moroccan soldiers under the blue beret of the United Nations will be exclusively the safety of personnel and facilities of the United Nations System in Central African Republic.

Morocco decided Friday, December 7, 2013, to send forces to Central African Republic (CAR) following the UN Security Council's authorization of an African-led and French-backed peacekeeping force in the violence-hit country.

Beginning of December 2013, the UN Security Council unanimously authorized the African military force MISCA to protect civilians and provide security in the violence-ridden nation. The measure also allows participation of troops from France.

The UN resolution was adopted amid reports of heavy gunfire in the CAR capital of Bangui, which has claimed at least 100 lives.
