United Nations – France utterly condemns the attack on MINUSMA (20 Jun. 2022)


France utterly condemns the attack on the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) in Kidal on 19 June 2022, which claimed the life of a Guinean Blue Helmet.

France extends its condolences to the deceased soldier’s loved ones and to the Guinean authorities.

France pays tribute to MINUSMA’s commitment. It points out with the greatest concern that this is the third deadly attack carried out against the United Nations mission since 1 June 2022 and that it comes in the context of increasing violence against civilians, who are the first victims of terrorism.
