    The UK has also offered up to 40 military personnel to take part in the planned EUTM – as well as a small number of civilian experts under the FCO’s Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative to provide human rights and gender awareness training within the mission. Planning for the EUTM is continuing in Brussels. No deployment of UK personnel will occur until force protection requirements are fully satisfied. None of the UK personnel involved in training missions would have a combat role.
    The UK is supportive, in principle, of French plans for a UN Peacekeeping Operation in Mali. This would need to be deployed in support of a political process that will build long-term stability and only when the conditions on the ground are such that it can play an effective role.”
