BAMAKO, Mali, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- The United Nations Security Council concluded a two-day visit to Mali on Monday.

The 15-member delegation traveled to Mali after reaffirming "its strong commitment to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Mali" in an official statement on January 23 that also underlined the Council's concern about instability and insecurity in northern Mali.

The Security Council expresses concern about the fragile security situation in the North of Mali, including the recent incidents that revealed that terrorists and other armed groups have reorganized themselves and regained some ability to operate. The Security Council stresses the primary responsibility of the Government of Mali for the provision of stability and security throughout its territory.

During their trip, the Council members traveled to northern Mali where they met with government authorities and civil society leaders, visited the camp and field missions of the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali, and were briefed on the security situation. Upon their return to the capital city of Bamako, Council members met with Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta, cabinet and parliamentary members, and government officials. They also met with the commander of Serval, the French security mission in Mali and the head of the European Union Training Mission.

The Council released a statement at the conclusion of the trip that said, "We reiterate our readiness to support the efforts of the Malian parties through the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and MINUSMA."
