Aussepolitik a Kooperatioun

How does the government react to the expulsion of a UN diplomat from Mali ?

The Malian authorities have expelled a UN diplomat from the country. Gusty Graas MP asks the Minister of Foreign and European Affairs how the Luxembourg government is reacting to this incident and how relations with Mali are in general.

Les autorités maliennes ont demandé au directeur de la Division des droits de l’homme de la mission multidimensionnelle intégrée des Nations unies pour la stabilisation au Mali (MINUSMA) et représentant du Haut-Commissariat des Nations unies aux droits de l’homme, M. Guillaume Ngefa, de quitter le pays.

Dans ce contexte j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Monsieur le Ministre des Affaires étrangères et européennes et à Monsieur le Ministre de la Coopération et de l’Action humanitaire :

  • Les agents mandatés ou financés directement ou indirectement par le Luxembourg sont-ils soumis à des restrictions similaires de la part des autorités maliennes ?
  • Cette démarche des autorités maliennes aura-t-elle un impact sur le positionnement du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg envers ce pays partenaire en matière de coopération au développement depuis 1999 ?
  • Messieurs les Ministres ont-ils été sollicités par leurs homologues dans le cadre d’une réponse commune à cette expulsion ? Dans l’affirmative, quelles sont les options analysées ?
  • Quelle est la position générale du gouvernement luxembourgeois vis-à-vis du Mali et plus particulièrement la MINUSMA à court et à moyen terme?
