(p. 21737)Heads of State from 32 countries, including French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, took part as well as Foreign ministers from a dozen other countries including Saudi Arabia, Norway, Morocco and Tunisia.The EU announced an extra €50m ($61m) for the force, taking total pledges by international donors to over €410m. The EU's High Representative Federica Mogherini said more pledges from individual countries were expected, saying “the price of not having peace has to be paid every day”. Donations to the G5 so far have been led by Saudi Arabia with €100m, while the United Arab Emirates has given €30m and the US $60m.Meanwhile Mauritania has named Colonel Salem Vall Ould Isselmou as commander of the G5 force in the western zone following completion of its second operation in the region.
