France condemns in the strongest possible terms the attack on the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) in Aguelhok, located in the Kidal region in the northeast of the country, which took the lives of four Chadian peacekeepers and left many wounded.
France offers its condolences to the deceased soldiers’ loved ones and to the Chadian authorities. It wishes the wounded peacekeepers a speedy recovery.
France applauds MINUSMA’s commitment; its role is crucial to stabilizing Mali. It reiterates its support for the authorities of the Sahel countries in their fight against terrorism.
Those responsible for these attacks must be identified and held accountable.
