Archbishop Dieudonne Nzapalainga, who is on a visit to Warsaw, has thanked Polish state and military authorities for the assistance to his country and its people.

"We need military forces capable of separating the warring sides and restoring peace. I'm grateful to Poland for commitment to send its soldiers. They can save many lives," the archbishop told Polish Radio.
