BAMAKO, Demining School FAMa, March 16, 2021, – The Commander of EUTM Mali, Brigade General GRACIA, signed the letter for the handover of the buildings intended for the demining school.
The Representative of the Embassy of Luxembourg to Mali, Mr. Patrick FISCHBACH, accompanied by the National Senior Representative of Luxembourg to EUTM, LTC Paul REDING, attended the ceremony and ribbon cutting. The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg financed the project. EUTM Mali reiterated its concern over the increasing humanitarian harm of attacks with improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in the wider Sahel region and their indiscriminate use and disproportionate effects in particular in the perpetration of terrorist acts. The expansion of the demining school is EUTM’s main effort in the project for the Malians to help better protecting themselves against IED threats. EUTM continues supporting the efforts of Mali and of all G5 Sahel countries for peace and security by improving the capacity of the Malian Armed Forces.
