Mali - UN – Renewal of MINUSMA mandate (New York, June 29, 2015)

France applauds yesterday’s renewal, by the UN Security Council, of the mandate of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA).

In this resolution presented by France, the Security Council underscored the historic opportunity represented by the peace agreement completed on June 20, and urged the parties to implement their commitments.

MINUSMA will play a leading role in supporting its implementation on both the political and security fronts, due to the 10,000 peacekeepers deployed in Mali.
