Sahel: EU extends mission in Mali

Brussels 11.01.2023 The Council today adopted a decision extending the mandate of the EU Capacity Building Mission in Mali (EUCAP Sahel Mali) until 31 January 2025, and allocating it over €73 million for the period between 1 February 2023 and 31 January 2025.

In light of the volatile situation in Mali, the Council has also decided to adapt the mission’s mandate so as to take into consideration the political and security situation in the country. EUCAP Sahel Mali will thus be able to facilitate the deployment of the internal security forces (ISF) to the South of Mali, focusing on the National Police, and the redeployment of the ISF to the centre of Mali, which could resume if deemed appropriate.

The decision was adopted as part of the Holistic Strategic Review of CSDP engagement in the region.
