On 25 September, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania Linas Linkevičius spoke at a high-level United Nations event, which focused on challenges facing Mali and the Sahel, as well as proactive measures to counter extremist narratives and ideologies.

“Youth unemployment, migration, women's lack of empowerment and many other factors have sent tensions soaring between communities. The Joint Force of the Group of Five for the Sahel is making a significant effort to address threats that transcend national borders. However, an extra effort must be invested to ensure security in the Sahel region and the fundamental principles of human rights are to be taken into account,” said L. Linkevičius. The Foreign Minister noted that Lithuania had also contributed to the peacekeeping mission in Mali and participated in the UN mission MINUSMA by sending its troops.
