Mali – Attack against MINUSMA (5 September 2017)


France condemns the attack against a MINUSMA convoy about 15 km from Aguelhok, in which two peacekeepers were killed and two others were seriously injured.

We extend our condolences to the victims’ families and wish the injured a swift recovery.

The perpetrators of this attack must be held accountable. UNSCR 2374 establishes a sanctions regime, making it possible to take measures against those who plotted, ordered, funded and perpetrated the attack.

France reaffirms its full support for the efforts of MINUSMA and the special representative of the UN secretary-general to stabilize Mali.
