A peace deal could be agreed in Mali "by the end of the week" according to the Force Commander of the UN Mission in the country, MINUSMA.

A coup d'état in the West African country in early 2012 continues to breed instability and violence.

UN peacekeepers have been targeted in some of the violence with 37 losing their lives and more than 200 wounded.

Major General Michael Lollesgaard is the Commander of MINUSMA.

Eleuterio Guevane asked him to describe the situation on the ground.
