The mission, known as MINUSMA, lowered the United Nations flag on its headquarters in the capital Bamako, its spokesperson Fatoumata Kaba told Newsmen.

The symbolic ceremony marks the official end of the mission, she said.

A “liquidation phase” will take place after January 1, involving activities such as handing over remaining equipment to the authorities.

The United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) was established in April 2013 to support political processes that included implementation of ceasefire agreements, delivery of humanitarian assistance, and maintenance of security during a fragile transition to constitutional order.

The withdrawal of the UN stabilisation mission, known as MINUSMA, has ignited fears that fighting will intensify between troops and armed factions for territorial control.
