"Regarding the MINUSMA you know the Security Council must debate the mandate extension of this operation. We have already strengthened our action in the centre within the general framework of limited resources, which will not change. I believe that this point must be stressed, because the member states today are putting a lot of pressure on the resources of MINUSMA, human resources, budgetary resources, as there is pressure on the resources of all peacekeeping missions. So, we will start to optimize the use of this resources, political, police and military ones. This situation makes the partnership with the European Union and other partners even more necessary."
