15 Sep EUTM Mali attends to G5 Sahel JF Defence and Security Committee meeting on 14 September at Sevare
On 14 September 2017, EUTM Mali’s mission force commander, brigadier general Laurent, together with members of the EU delegations and “Expertise France”, attend to the board meeting of the G5 Sahel “Comité de Défense et de Sécurité” (CDS) of the G5 Sahel Joint Force Headquarters in Sevare.
This Defence and Security Committee is the body that brings together the Chiefs of Staff and the officials responsible for security matters by the Member States of the G5 Sahel. The EUTM Mali mission provides support to the G5 Sahel process by contributing to enhancing coordination and interoperability with G5 Sahel national armed forces.
However, providing training and advisory to the Malian Armed Forces (FAMA) remains the priority mission of the EUTM Mali!
