I. Introduction

  1. By its resolution 2480 (2019), the Security Council extended the mandate of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) until 30 June 2020 and requested me to report to the Council every three months on the implementation of the resolution. The present report highlights progress made in the implementation of the Agreement on Peace and Reconciliation in Mali and in the development and implementation of a comprehensive politica lly led strategy to re-establish a State presence, State authority and basic social services, protect civilians and reduce intercommunal violence in central Mali, as well as in MINUSMA efforts to support these objectives. It also provides an update on coordination among MINUSMA, the Malian Defence and Security Forces, the Joint Force of the Group of Five for the Sahel, the French forces and the European Unio n missions in Mali. It covers major developments in Mali since my previous report (S/2019/454), dated 31 May 2019.
