Mali's readmission into the African Union (October 25, 2012)
France welcomes the decision taken on October 24 by the African Union to readmit Mali into the organization.
This readmission reflects the commitment of the African states in support of the process advocated by the transitional Malian authorities and in support of finding a lasting solution to the crisis. We call on the Malian authorities to continue their efforts in this direction, notably by organizing conferences focusing on national dialogue and by adopting a road map outlining the future phases of the transition.
Mali’s readmission into the African Union will facilitate international cooperation between all those who are working to resolve the Malian crisis, in accordance with UNSCR 2071.
