“The United Nations continues to discuss with member states the deployment of new assets and plans to fill older gaps in addition to those resulting from recent announcements,” Haq told reporters at a regular briefing.

He said MINUSMA has made commitments for the deployment around March next year of armed helicopter units from Pakistan and Bangladesh and a third utility helicopter unit from India.

“These provide much-needed support to our forces and are critical for early warning and rapid response to protect civilians,” the spokesperson said. “Discussions about possible additional contributions from other troop-contributing countries are ongoing.”

On Monday, Haq acknowledged that Mali had security problems and the sacrifices of peacekeepers as many lost their lives. ■
