Asked about the Government’s support over Mali, the PMS said that the PM had also spoken to President Hollande over the weekend and discussed Mali. The Government was providing logistical support for the French Government, and was not going to play a combat role. Two C-17 aircraft were currently being provided. If other logistical roles were proposed, they would be considered.
