Mali: EU condolences to MINUSMA
Yesterday, the MINUSMA peacekeepers in Mali were again under attack, causing casualties and injuries. The day before, the Malian armed forces also lost men in the center of the country.
These attacks against the peacekeeping forces and the protection of the citizens of Mali against terrorism are aimed at preventing peace in Mali.
The EU extends its condolences to the families of the victims, the Government of Mali and the United Nation, and wishes a speedy recovery of the injured.
The European Union also remains firmly committed, together with the international community, to supporting the efforts of the Sahel G5 countries in the fight against terrorism and for peace, security and development in the region, as reaffirmed on 23 February by representatives of more than 60 countries and international organizations during the International High Level Conference on the Sahel in Brussels.
