Mali - Installation of all interim authorities (20 April 2017)


France welcomes the establishment of the interim authorities responsible for the five regions of northern Mali on April 20, following the installation of authorities in Taoudéni and Timbuktu.

France congratulates all of the parties on demonstrating a spirit of compromise.

The challenge now for these authorities is to swiftly respond to the critical needs of the populations, with the support of the government.

We encourage all parties to continue to actively cooperate in order to consolidate the achievements of the peace process, notably through the establishment of the institutional framework set out in the Algiers agreement.
