France utterly condemns the attack that killed an Egyptian MINUSMA peacekeeper in the Mopti region on April 20. It condemns with equal force the attack that left 11 Malian soldiers dead in the village of Guire on April 20.
It extends its condolences to the families of the soldiers who were killed.
It reaffirms its support for the Malian authorities in their fight against terrorism, as well as for MINUSMA, which has a key role to play in Mali’s stabilization.
The perpetrators of these attacks must be prosecuted and held accountable for their actions.
