UNITED NATIONS, December 21 (Itar-Tass) —— The U.N. Security Council has authorised a deployment of a peacekeeping contingent in Mali to free northern regions of the country from Islamic extremists.
A resolution adopted on December 20 stresses that the peacekeeping contingent will operate honouring the sovereignty, territorial integrity and unity of Mali.
The document allows a deployment of the African-led International Support Mission to Mali (AFISMA) of 3,300 troops for an initial period of one year.
