James Heappey – 2021 Comments on Daesh Weapons Seized in Mali

The comments made by James Heappey, the Minister for the Armed Forces, on 3 November 2021.

These operations are yet another example of how UK peacekeepers are making a real difference to the UN mission to protect civilians in Mali.

Disrupting armed groups and taking valuable weapons and ammunition out of the hands of terrorists makes communities safer, while our presence in the region helps the UN mission to understand and counter threats to the local population.
