UN establishes sanctions against people destabilising Mali

The UN Security Council has adopted a resolution (2374 (2017)) establishing a sanctions regime on Mali, which will impose travel bans and assets freezes on people and entities engaged in activities that threaten the peace, security, or stability of the country.  A sanctions committee has been set up for an initial period of 13 months to help operate the sanctions regime.

The Government of Mali requested in August that a sanctions regime be set up, in response to what it said were repeated ceasefire violations by armed groups in Northern Mali.
