Denmark Foreign Minister, Kristian Jensen, will send to Mali a contingent of special forces and military transport to help stabilize that West African country, it was announced here.
Jensen informed his State will send 30 men, another 15 additional agents and a military airplane type Hercules C-130 to the African country, as part of the Stabilization Mission of the United Nations in Mali (Minusba), it is indicated in the website Wanafrica.com.
We do that to create stability in Mali that is one of the most fragile countries of the world, but even so, in June was signed a peace agreement.
That is why we wish to support the important work of the UN in the country, he declared.
General Michael Lollesgaard, commander of the Minusma, asked
Copenhagen for the supply of 250 soldiers and up to 30 armored vehicles for what it said was a dangerous mission.
However, in a meeting with the Commission of Foreign Affairs of the Parliament, Jensen said that Denmark will not allow the United Nations to determine its military commitments and affirmed the Government will not put all its eggs in only one basket.
