MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 01st March, 2019) Russian instructors working in the Central African Republic (CAR) have trained more than 2,000 troops and law enforcement officers in the African country, Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday, adding that they have already started performing urgent security tasks.

"So far, Russian specialists have trained over 2,000 troops and law enforcement officers in the CAR, who have already started performing urgent tasks involving the protection of civilians, maintaining security and establishing the government's authority across the entire state," the ministry said in a statement published on its official Facebook page.

The car has been suffering from a drawn-out conflict since a coup in 2013. Much of the fighting in recent years has been between Muslim-majority Seleka and Christian Anti-Balaka militias.

On February 6, the CAR government and armed groups signed a peace accord after nearly two weeks of negotiations in Khartoum. The peace talks were held under the auspices of the African Union, within the framework of the African Initiative for Peace and Reconciliation in the CAR.
