 The European Union (EU) has appointed Brigadier General Bruno Guibert
as the new Head of  Mission for the EU training mission in Mali (EUTM Mali).
According to a statement issued by EU, General Guibert, from France, will take
up his duties with effect from  1 August, 2013. He  will succeed Brigadier General François Lecointre, who had been in the position since the mission was
established in January.

The EU training mission supports the training and re-organisation of the Malian Armed Forces. It is intended to help improve the military capacity of the Malian Armed Forces in order to allow, under civilian authority, the restoration of the country’s territorial integrity.

The mission’s mandate currently runs until May 2014. The decision to appoint him was reportedly taken by the EU’s Political and Security Committee.
