UN peacekeeping mission in Mali to resume troop rotation

The U.N. peacekeeping mission in Mali, MINUSMA, is to resume contingent rotations starting today, Monday August 15, under fresh approval procedures, the Malian foreign minister and a U.N. spokeswoman have said.

According to Mali's Foreign Minister, Abdoulaye Diop, after the Sahel state suspended the rotations last month for "national security" reasons, MINUSMA agreed to the new procedures and communicated them to all countries contributing troops.
