The European Union extends its sincere condolences to the families of the victims and to France. We reiterate our support for the French forces of Operation Barkhane in their efforts to achieve security in Mali and the Sahel. The European Union will continue to work alongside the Sahel countries and the international community to support peace, stability and development in Mali and the whole of the Sahel region, in particular under the G5 Sahel initiative.
