Mandates[edit]

Since 2013, Council has adopted several decisions. According to these documents, EUTM Mali has evolved towards its current nature. The most relevant ones has been:

  • Council Decision 2013/34/CFSP:[1] EUTM Mali creation
  • Council Decision 2013/87/CFSP:[2] EUTM Mali mission launching
  • Council Decision 2014/220/CFSP:[3] 2nd mandate. EUTM Mali is extended until 18 May 2016.

Relationships[edit]

EUTM Mali has links with EUCAP Sahel Mali, the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali and Operation Barkhane in the north of Mali, with which EUTM shares the same goal, to help Mali to free the north of its territory. Notwithstanding, EUTM Mali's mission is a mission of training and advice. After France, Germany, Belgium (in 2016), Czech Republic became in 2020 the leading nation of this mission.[citation needed]
