Attack on MINUSMA

June 4, 2022
Spain strongly condemns the terrorist attacks on the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) on 1 and 3 June, killing two peacekeepers of Egyptian nationality and one of Jordanian nationality, and injuring several others.

The Government of Spain expresses its condolences to the families of the victims, to the United Nations and to the Governments of Egypt and Jordan, and wishes those injured a speedy recovery. Attacks on members of United Nations missions are a violation of international humanitarian law. Spain calls on the transition authorities of Mali to investigate the events and to bring those responsible to justice.

Spain underlines the crucial role played by MINUSMA and the need for it to comply with the implementation of the 2015 Agreement on Peace and Reconciliation in Mali without encountering obstacles and to stabilise and reinstate the State authority at the heart of Malian society, along with the protection of the civilian population, respect for human rights and international humanitarian law, and to facilitate the provision of humanitarian aid. Spain participates on this Mission with its security forces and military personnel.

Spain wishes to pass on its concern over the serious deterioration of the security and humanitarian situation in the Sahel and reiterates its firm commitment to the fight against the terrorist threat in the region, and to the stabilisation and development of the countries that comprise it to the benefit of their people.
