London, 03 Rabiul Awwal 1434/ 15 January 2013 (AA/MINA) – Britain is sending two air freighters to France in regards to France’s military intervention in Mali.
One of the air freighters to be used as air supply is said to have left England on Sunday.
Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Mark Simmonds said that England was only going to provide logistic support to France and no military support, as northern Mali under control of Al-Qaida posed a direct threat to England.
British Prime Minister David Cameron had spoken to French President Francois Hollande previously and decided that England would provide logistic support to France. (T.R-014/R-006)
