Radio is an invaluable resource to peacekeeping, the head of a recently-launched UN Radio in the West African nation of Mali has said.

Helene Papper made the remarks ahead of World Radio Day (WRD) observed annually on 13 February.

The Day is a global celebration of radio as a medium and this year's goal is to increase the level of participation of young people as producers of content.

Mali's north remains volatile since early 2012 because of fighting between Government troops and Tuareg rebels as well as the seizure of the area by radical Islamists.

Ms Papper told Jocelyne Sambira that the outlet has offered a neutral platform for people to dialogue.
