US to give France military transport planes for Mali operation

US to give France military transport planes for Mali operation

The United States will supply France with military transport planes to fly troops and cargo to Mali, where French commando units are currently fighting Islamist militants.

According to a spokesperson for the White House, the US Administration has positively reacted to a request by Paris to that effect. Earlier, the Pentagon Chief, Leon Panetta, said that the United States had been feeding intelligence to France about the situation in Mali.

Washington has also suggested that Paris use American drones for reconnaissance and enemy observation. The situation in Mali was aggravated after the armed groups of Islamists seized the north of the country and started attacking the central areas of Mali.
