France condemns in the strongest possible terms the attack on the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) near Kidal on June 1, which took the life of a Jordanian peacekeeper and wounded three others of the same nationality.
France offers its condolences to the deceased soldier’s loved ones and to the Jordanian authorities. We wish the wounded peacekeepers a speedy recovery.
France applauds MINUSMA’s dedication. We reiterate our support for the authorities of the Sahel countries, which play a key role in stabilizing Mali and protecting civilians, the leading victims of terrorisms.
