Mali – Attack on the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (May 28, 2015)

France condemns the May 28th terrorist attack on the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) that injured three peacekeepers in the Timbuktu area. We wish the victims a speedy recovery.

We hope to see a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding this attack, and for those responsible to be brought to justice.

France once again applauds MINUSMA’s work and the commitment of those countries that supply its troops. Together with the Malian authorities, its African partners, and the United Nations, France remains committed to helping stabilize Mali.
